Where does that leave me and those of a similar age?
The thing is that my generation of Sherlockians were transitioning in another sense too. We were born into a non-internet world and have seen the arrival of social media in the world at large as well as in the Sherlockian world. I think the majority of us have embraced it yet, I think, we still have the old-school fondness for traditional societies in the way the up and coming generation don't seem to have (at least not to the same degree). We are very much caught between two Sherlockian stools.
As we're in the middle is it our task to join together those at the ends of the spectrum? Do we need to be the generation that gets the new devotees to talk to the establishment and vice versa (before we become the establishment)?
