Myron Oakes — Aug 2010

How many times have you heard it? “That person is probably a little too old to really do well with the new technology.” Or maybe it comes from one of the 50-somethings or 60-somethings in your office, sounding something like “That’s easy for the young people to learn, but not me.” Or maybe it’s “We should modify our training program for that group – they’re mostly older, and it’s harder for them to catch on.”
