The true definition of Generation-Y (wikipedia is wrong)

The wikipedia definition for "Generation-Y" is simply wrong.  Wikipedia says that "Generation-Y" == "Millennials" and that's simply wrong.

See I was born in 1973 and I've always referred to myself as Generation-Y.  My brother who is 3 years older than me
is Generation-X (the "do nothing generation.")

You say, "So what's the difference?"  Simple.   Generation-Y were the pineers of the internet.  My brother just missed
the internet explosion because he's 3 years older than me.  He's Generation-X.

I'm Generation-Y.  I had one of the first 10,000 "home pages" on the internet.

But I'm not a Millennial.  So no, Generation-Y does NOT equal a Millennial.   Wikipedia is wrong.

So the clearify this once and for all:

Born in the 1960's = Generation-X
Born in the 1970's = Generation-Y
Born in the 1980's to 1990's = Millennials.
