InRight Here, Right Now, Matthew Hennessey calls on his generation, Generation X, to take a stand against tech-obsessed Millennials, anti-free speech campus cupcakes, apathetic Baby Boomers, utopian Silicon Valley visionaries, and the menace to top them all: the soft totalitarian conspiracy known as the Internet of Things. Soon Gen Xers will be the only cohort of Americans who remember life as it was lived before the arrival of the Internet. They are, as Hennessey dubs them, the last analog generation, the sole remaining link to a time when childhood was still a bit dangerous but produced adults who were naturally resilient.

Right Here, Right Now is a cultural history of the last 35 years in America, an analysis of the current social and historical moment, and a generational call to arms. The Baby Boomers are exhausted. The Millennials are preoccupied with their gadgets and apps. InRight Here, Right Now, Hennessey argues that the time has come for Generation X to stand up and be counted. This is their moment.
