New age developers?

I'm getting really tired (aka fed up) hearing about "new age" developers and applications, when certain people talk about the cloud. Look, there are only developers and applications! There's nothing "new age" about this. Some things change, as with each new wave of technology, but many things remain the same. Sure the problem space has changed and we are seeing new applications and approaches being developed, but let's not imbue mythical attributes to those applications or developers! They're no better or worse than developers or apps of the past. Though if you listen to some, "new age" means thinking and working so far outside the box that you're in the next reality! This is starting to get ridiculous and in the local vernacular it's getting on nerves! Evolution people, not revolution!
