An article in the UK’s Guardian newspaper should be essential reading for those younger people who write off the interest of older people in getting online, or the benefits it can bring in reducing social isolation. Browse the comments too. This editor especially liked the exchange on 17 May between Decadere “…Maybe I shouldn’t get so angry at my mum when I have to explain 5,000 times that sometimes she has to double click. Not always mother, just sometimes” and welovelucytoo’s response “@Decadere – you will get your comeuppance. When you get to be your mum’s age, your children will similarly be frustrated at your total inability to control your quantum computer with the simplest of thought patterns…” Being online aged 90 has made my old age less lonely. Others aren’t so lucky.
