Golden Years

Yesterday I appeared at a local meeting of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute, where I talked about the Virtualpolitik book and where digital rhetoric has been going since its publication. OLLI holds meetings for senior citizens on several college campuses, and many of its satellite locations emphasize computer training. Not many of the seniors said that they had played videogames or enrolled in social network sites, but it was interesting to see how many of them used genealogy websites, sometimes without thinking about how such sites might facilitate identity theft.

Slides are here.
