It is amazing how we evolved over the past 20 years. I remember when some folks that were older than me were cursing at cell phones and vowed that they will “NEVER” use them. I remember when email first came out and I would not touch it. I used to dictate emails to my secretary, and she would type them out and send them. Easy enough for me!
I stopped by the iPad social hour at Charlotte Street Computers in Asheville tonight and saw a great group of people hanging out, eating pizza, drinking beer, and talking about iPads. I talked with local photographer Micah Mackenzie and we both took some video clips and photos. I ended up looking at this photo again and again because it stuck in my head as “Generations past get a hold of technology.” Here are 3 elderly gentlemen with iPads and they are discussing apps and functionality. This is part of the pie and everyone wants a piece. I am very excited about how social media and networking is crossing generational lines and cultures. Come get some!
