Tiny birds tweet
young birds text
retired journalists and artists blog
every body has a website
only musicians Myspace
FACEBOOK  has 500 million
Over 50? you grew when phones had cords and dials
analogue ,you played the Beatles on vinyl
You knew cassette tapes and maybe 8 track
BETAMAX and videos defined your MTV
now you are slow as paper filing
do not trust online transactions
probably will have your identity stolen
have one password for all your accounts
and that can be so easily hacked
You still use checks .You dress unconsciously retro
(you do not know that you do not know)
Young people speak a different language
They carry laptops,ipods,ipads-they have moved from email
when you are just learning how to.Web#2 starts for them
They have their data in the Cloud.Know about offshore accounts
They are preparing for retirement before they begin their careers
They will know a different world to you.We are divided by data.
