Help Required

Obligatory old bloke on laptop photo

I’m doing some work for a client around trying to get digital immigrants (50+) involved in social networking on the web. I’ve got a few start points but wondered if anyone had any interesting sources on older web users they’d like to share. Any pointers gratefully received!

Cheers

    Hi,
    You should check http://www.eons.com/?a=b if you haven’t.
    This site is a community for people aged 50 and more… So the topics are body, fun, love, money, goals…and obits. You can have a tribute to someone who died ages ago…

    Not sure if I’m too late, or if you’ve already seen this, but a nice bit of video featuring an old man blogging is contained in this movie:


    It’d provide a nice soundbite for a presentation.
