(This is my first response on Medium since I just heard of the platform)

My current project is developing a social network for the 55+ community. I love this story because we take for granted that senior citizens aren’t interested in the digital society we live in. This is not the case. My wife and I had dinner with a close friend at a restaurant. When we drove her back to her home, she invited us in and grabbed her iPad to show us the latest pics of her grandchildren. I watched her hands nimbly click through to the pics she wanted to access. What’s so special about this?

She is 96.
