The Times Online in the UK reports that May 15 is "Silver Surfers' Day" in the UK and the organizers of the day have come up with 10 reasons why older people should connect.
"The truth is that for older people, being online often makes more sense than it does for the young. Simple things such as online shopping can transform lives, while e-mail, messaging and chat can help maintain contact with friends and family all around the world."
Check out the 10 reasons and adapt them for your use. It would be great to see Silver Surfers' Day in the US, too.
