Editor’s note: The Millennials are a generation that are constantly plugged in and moving fast to make their mark on the world. CNN’s Quest Means Business is tracking four of them. In this guest blog, Millennial Joe Braidwood questions Facebook's $1 billion purchase of Instagram.

(CNN) - Yesterday Mark Zuckerberg casually penned 352 words on his Facebook Timeline to let the world know that he’d agreed to buy the popular photo-sharing app Instagram.

My first reaction was that this was a great move - photos are the most shared content on Facebook, and injecting some great engineering and vision into that part of their product portfolio, while also acquiring a big community of passionate users, makes perfect sense.

Then I read the price on VentureBeat - $1 billion in cash and stock. No, must be a typo. I checked TechCrunch. One billion.  FULL POST

Editor’s note: The Millennials are a generation that are constantly plugged in and moving fast to make their mark on the world. CNN’s Quest Means Business is tracking four of them. In this episode, Intern Latin America's David Lloyd comes to London and tests some potential new staffers while trainee actor Michael Burbach gets ready for the working world. In this guest blog, Michael explains why the theatre remains such an important art form.

New York (CNN) – “Ladies and gentlemen, the performance of [title of show] will begin shortly. Please turn off all cell phones and electronic devices. Thank you, and enjoy the show.”

The lights are dimmed, the first few notes from the orchestra are played, and the curtain is raised. I take a big, slow breath as the first moments of a Broadway show begin. Only the stage exists, time dissolves. I’m lost in the Magic of the Theatre.

Oh, wait. No. I’m still on earth. I’m reminded of this by the pinprick of light in my peripheral vision. My eyes unglue themselves from the actors to investigate the star amidst the sea of audience.

(CNN) – In New York, Michael Burbach tells CNN belief is everything.

According to this Millennial: "If you want it and need it enough, you can do it, that's the craziest thing."

But Michael's shot at the bright lights cannot begin without a dramatic final test.

Michael is joining his classmates at Marymount Manhattan College for their first rehearsal of Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream."

Michael's performance here is crucial. It is the culmination of years of hard work.

Editor’s note: The Millennials are a generation that are constantly plugged in and moving fast to make their mark on the world. CNN’s Quest Means Business is tracking four of them. Here, Millennial and guest blogger David Lloyd - managing director of Intern Latin America, which brings international students to the region - writes on the unstoppable rise of Latin America.

Santiago, Chile (CNN) – “This 21st century will be our century, the century of Latin America,” wrote Sebastián Piñera, the president of Chile, in a recent article for The Economist. Piñera is right and the bet on “LatAm” as financiers like to refer to it, is a bet that is almost certain to come off.
