“Please stop changing the Google logo so much.”
“My mom and technology”

Valerie,

Ageism is anther form of discrimination is what Gabby meant. I find these all hilarious. Scotty said it best "The more they overtake the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain."

I was a software engineer and stuff like this is a gold mine. Sometimes a clunky app seems intuitive to the developer because you were in on the development process but these kind of posts make it apparent it's not so intuitive to outsiders.

When I was young and smug, I ignored it when older people said 'one day, it'll be your turn'...they never said how it's NOT gradual. You won't be ready, you won't be set, and you won't see it coming. It's like a snap of the fingers when suddenly the pace of the world is just a bit beyond you and you do your best to keep up. So as you smirk at older people, just remember that. One day to the next, and bang, you realize that you're on this side now and you'll be ready to say it yourself. It doesn't feel very good because you know you've taken the first step to being left behind. Older people aren't trying to patronize you, they're trying to warn you.

Greg, Yeah, I'm concerned with getting old. But, it's a long way off. I'm still young. In two weeks I'll be 74 so it'll be a while before I join you old folks. lol
