Even Stodgy Boomers Embrace Inspiring Technology

Even as someone who works in the technology arena, I sometimes find a natural reticence to fully embrace new things (like the smartphone - I only got one a few months ago). Tweeting and Facebooking can seem frivolous and something for "younger people". And yet, when something meets a need or captures our imagination, we will often press ahead and eventually "join the club" - at least for that particular technology.  Skype and email are probably good examples; once you dip your toe in the digital waters, most don't look back; Grandma will Skype the grand kids for their birthdays, and of course enjoy both seeing and hearing them. The article below expands on this and refers to an inspirational "Ted Talk" video to illustrate the concept.
