I enjoy teaching and I love technology. I want to understand more and more about it but also teach people about what I know.
That’s why I started my YouTube Channel, a Tech podcast and recently this newsletter.
Recently I visited my wife’s uncle and aunt who are quite senior and were struggling with some computer issues. I fixed it for them and they were really happy. Even though they are confident with the law (they are lawyers), they aren’t confident with technology.
This made me realize that there are many seniors who don’t know many different aspects of technology even though they are surrounded by it. I am not talking about paying by a credit card, etc. But simple things for us like casting on TV, or resolving some issue on our Windows machine by doing a quick Google search, etc.
Whenever there is talk about accessibility there is a lot of focus on people our age. But very less or none about seniors.
If we want to live in a world where everyone is fully integrated, then we must design tech products keeping various types of consumers in mind, no matter the age, gender, or ability.
