Computing for an older generation

I came across this video and just had to share it with someone, but I had more to say than would fit into Facebook or Twitter (and who uses Google+?!)

I love that he is so excited that he can barely speak. It’s great that someone from one of the older generations (read: alive before the 1990’s) can get into and find uses for technology that kids take for granted.

With “tablets” and smart phones (iPhone, iPad, Android, and others) the whole landscape has shifted to a point where a computing device can be used by anyone without any prior computing experience or training. Finally, we’re at a point where technology is becoming a facilitator rather than something for only for geeks. These devices are delivering on the unspoken promise that the founders of the internet made to the world; information will be freely accessible by everyone, anywhere, and at any time.
