If it makes you feel better, I'm 28 and literally started publicizing my work this past April - I've been telling myself I should have started around the time you did. But you know: best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, second best time is today.
Anyway, I've found these types of topics tend to attract "Damn kids these days!" mentalities and I'd like to turn the sentiment away from that. Yeah, we had some great stuff in the 90s, but I've been keeping up with "kid's shows" (i.e. cartoons) well into my adulthood and I've gotta say there's still some good stuff. I think we should remember, the same 90s kids that grew up on what we enjoyed are now in the industry making entertainment for today's generation.
