I like Pesca. I thought the comment was not ageism, but was appropriate and was pointing out the notion that there is a divide in adopting of digital tools. Most often this a generational divide.

I don't think this is a generational thing... I'm in my late 20s and consider myself quite tech-savvy (currently programming a webpage), but I still rely on old-fashioned post-its and an agenda to keep track of my to-dos. I even had an iPhone and got rid of it - it was just one more thing to keep track of!

I'm a single mom of an infant and I find the most helpful way to get out the door and back in without forgetting the groceries I need for dinner is to bring something tangible with me so that it gets in my way and I am required to pay attention to it!

As for the ADD comment, well, let me just say that I'm so busy keeping on top of eating and laundry and getting myself and my child in and out the door properly clothed and fed and ready for the day and dinner and the next day that I don't even remember if I've paid my bills (and sometimes pay them twice by mistake...)!

the real truth from everywhere!

I hate when Brian's away, because you offend me at least OncE every vacation. SOmetimes once a day. And today, it's the ageism.

(Plus, you just had to make the comment about being at the "nadir"? Do you think that was clever? If Brian said that he'd apologize for it.)

And if this doesn't madke the boards, can you just forward it to management as a complaint about Pesca?

The phone connection stinks. Very apropos.

You people have an ADD problem if you need a phone to remember what to do.
