Wow, Positive news for the ancient ones

I am so tired of reading about all of the trama and dispair that retired folks are getting into and this is a fresh, positive look at the subject.

In short, the AgeLab is working on a future where older citizens not just add years to their life but add life to their years. And it's a life that will include fun, purpose, health, wealth and -- not surprisingly -- technology. "We see that it will be a great time to grow old," said Coughlin, who last week released, along with The Hartford, research about retirement rationalizations.

Fascinating article. Thanks for posting the link. Here is an interesting excerpt from the article:

".......Coughlin says business, government and individuals will have to rethink all things retirement. Most organizations, he says, were created yesterday and use yesterday's thinking to create solutions....."
