A good part of my computer career has been working in cutting edge technology.
My first job as a computer operator was in the days when “computer” was a magic word. I loved showing family and friends around the Control Data 3200 at CSIRO behind Monash University. That computer is now in the Melbourne Museum!
I started working on Personal Computers (PCs) in the early days. I loved helping local families, kindergartens and small business become computer literate.
Now it is time to help at the other end of the scale – older people at risk of missing out on communicating with their younger friends and family becuase they
- don’t have the computer skills
- lack mobility
In my travels I came across Eldy “… software that turns any standard PC into an easy-to-use computer for people that have never used a computer before”. I have installed both single-user and multi-user versions and I am impressed. I think it is a perfect option to simplify the user experience for our older friends. Have a look at the Eldy web site, and contact me if you’d like to know more about it.
