@BillSmith3 Thanks Bill. It is a complex and multi-faceted issue, Great point about the digital divide. Hopefully we can find a way to bridge that. I guess that's where millennials can help guide the older generations along - and the older ones will need to keep an open mind...

@RobBiesenbach I think it was... That's why the Seinfeld shows still work, IMHO...

@AmyMccTobin @shellykramer I'm with both of you on that! Thanks Amy!
@RebeccaTodd Thanks Rebecca! I like EFF a lot.
You're so right about it coming down to attitude - and the important thing is keeping an open mind about everything regardless of age. And sometimes, it's too easy to fall into the 'I do things this way' mentality. We all have to fight against that!
@rdopping I am older than you. And I apologize for my generation - or parts of it :).
I don't think you're ever too old to try new things - it might take longer to get the hang of them, but that's OK.
@RobBiesenbach Thanks Rob. You know - I wonder if Louis CK has taken that role as cultural observer. He's critically funny, not borderline out of touch funny. And that's why he can appeal to a wide age range - the way Seinfeld used to.
@belllindsay It's great to be back. Oh - Thanks and sorry, Lindsay! A typical Canadian greeting!
@annelizhannan That's great to hear. And it's important to keep trying! I know I stumble around new platform a lot more than my kids - but then it levels off and we start to learn from each other. Thanks!

@JRHalloran Thanks JR. I think the important thing is to keep an open mind and try new things - no matter how old you are. And, sometimes you need to accept that it may take some time till you catch on.
And regarding cars that drive themselves? I'm ready now!
Great story, Eden. And maybe you've come up with the answer to the question can you make me a viral video? That depends on how lucky you are...
And you and Hilary have set a record for #digitaledu, not sure we'll ever top two viral videos in one week!
