The internet’s just for kids – right?

All this internet and social media stuff is just for isn’t it and older people are facing a bleak future of digital exclusion.

Tell that to Peter, a 79 year-old “living in the middle of England”, who as geriatric1927 has become the latest start of YouTube. He’s already had 430,000 views of his videos, approaching 7,000 subscribers and almost 9,000 comments.

Thanks to Antony Mayfield for the story (thanks to Rob Skinner I’m no longer doing hat tips because he’s right and I’m wrong to use jargon).

  1. Rob Skinner – I'm Rob Skinner. My family know me as Robert. My wife calls me Ert. (The part of 'Robert' that I don't always use...) I've been working in PR since 1987, mostly in financial services. In my spare time, I enjoy cycling reading, editing videos on my computer and practising my Welsh (dwi'n dod yn wreiddiol o Gaerdydd). And blogging. Do please post a comment! NOTE: this is my personal blog. It does not represent the views of the organisations I work for.

    Stuart – sorry if I showed disrespect for what is obviously a buzz phrase amongst long-standing bloggers! But thanks for taking note that many of who are new to blogging – and reading blogs – will find such phrases obscure.
