New Year’s Resolution 2009: don’t be a Nana. I don’t want to be the woman who can’t work a tape deck. Or use an ATM. Or a VCR. Or drive a stick. Perhaps I was a bit behind the times waiting until the 90s to get a microwave, but that’s all changing. Today. The technological revolution has left me a bumbling grandma and I’m not 50 . . . yet.

It’s hard for anyone to keep up and figure it out. You’re well on your way though by using linked in, this is a great site to connect to other people. Plus the best part is, if an old colleague moves jobs you know where they are and what they are doing, no more calling an old friend and getting the message of “they no longer work here”.
