I realize I’m getting older and the “old man” jokes are already becoming tiresome, but what the hell is with people telling me that I know more about technology because I’m not as old as they are. This leads me to asking them how old they think I am. They guess in the early 30’s and I always reply with “I wish”. Then proceed to tell them that most of my kids are grown up and 2 of them are already married (NO GRAND KIDS YET PLEASE!!!!).
Then I got to thinking, none of my kids got into technology. Well 1 got into playing MMORPG games, but that doesn’t make her knowledgeable about technology. She still can’t operate her digital video camera properly. So, there’s an example of a young generation not getting with it.
Also, 90% of the people who helped me become as knowledgeable as I am, are considerably older than me. Not too mention, that computers started long before I ever got into it. So, there’s an example of older generations who know more than I do.
So what does age have to do with technology? You can learn at any age! I’m not young and I’m not old. I just have a sincere interest in technology. Therefore I learn it. You can too, if you’re interested.
