So, do you own an iPad, an xbox, or a wii? What about an iPhone or a blackberry? Your kids have them. Why don’t you? If you plan on staying in this business for any amount of time, you have to stay current. There are not a lot of jobs out there for Lisp or Foxpro developers. I have 15 years till I retire. 15 years ago, the Internet was something only the nerds (myself included) used. Today, my parents use Facebook and ancestry.com all the time. They drive me crazy with questions that they would already have learned if they adopted technology. If we are going to stay in the tech business, we need to be in the tech business. Buy a WII and get fit. Buy an Xbox and play COD. Buy an iPad.
After all, you might actually enjoy it.
Remember, your AARP card is just around the corner. It is probably in the mail already.
Thanks for coming in today.
(BTW, if you don’t know what COD is, ask a kid. Don’t act your age. You will have time to act old when you retire or die, whichever comes first.)
