elder wisdom circle

wow, this is pretty amazing. from npr's story of the day, there's a story about a bunch of over 60s who have grouped together and started dispensing advice to people who ask for it via the internet. the advice can be as mundane as a recipe or household tip to even social and personal problems.

its like reverse targetted google answers. pretty neat concept if you ask me. great way to encourage older people to join in a community on the internet. there should be more of this stuff. i can just imagine, a group of butchers who sit around and dispense advice about flower arrangement, or a group of plumbers who sit around and dispense advice about screw diameter and sizes.

You can reply to me about this on Twitter:
