Social media, and the web in general are second nature to those who grew up with them. I work a great deal with, shall we say, older demographics, with very traditional backgrounds. It can be difficult to bring them up to speed, but I see so much potential for these groups, allowing them to build and maintain their connections with others.
My career (if we can call it that) has been in both technical and arcane, artisanal areas. This blog is produced for educational purposes as a social media class assignment at Clark University, where I was Clark's Oldest Living Student (TM).
