On ageism

  • Interesting piece, well worth a read.
  • What he says about people coming into their own as they age is very true. There is so much I can contribute to my art, software development, that I would not have been able to contribute earlier.
  • My solution is to do it anyway, whether or not I have the approval or support of younger people. I am not nearly as effective as I would be if they would work with me, but you also learn, as you get older, to accept other people's power. I can't make them do anything they don't want to do. So I don't try.
  • However, I hope when they attain the maturity that I have, they will find my work and will find it useful. And in that way, we'll work together. Not in the most optimal way.
  • That's one of the reasons I'm so interested in having future-safe archives. :-)
