Technology designed by the young for the young?

In Aging in Place Watch, Laurie Orlov ponders why so much technology is not used by older people.

The blog posting title "Retro is a word that needs a tech future" says it all.

I think she has a point but perhaps overstates the issue. Personally, I think that the current generation of technology has great possibilities to make the interface between person and silicon much easier.

Gestures and voice commands will become (in my view) key components of how we control our technology. That can only be a good thing (I think). Dick Stroud
