Sometimes it helps to listen to the older guys, though. I'm a semi-regular listener to This Week in Tech on TWiT, and John C. Dvorak brought up an interesting point: more PCs were sold in the last 6 months than the total number of iPads sold. This in a post-PC era, on a network where the younger, savvier folk have declared the PC to be dead, dead, dead and PC manufacturers should just get on with building phones and tablets.
Dismissing the older white guys because they're older white guys seems...um...well, I can't think of anything nice to say about that. Skin pigmentation and where one carries one's genitals does not confirm or deny the existence of wisdom, intelligence, or business savvy. If it did, well, what would that say about my (deceased) racist, misogynist great-grandpa? Because he thought skin pigmentation told you nearly everything you need to know about a person.
Ever use RSS?
EDIT: Having said all of the above...I'm 38 years old, about to turn 39, and despite going into the Real World straight out of college and sticking with it, I still get treated like the greenhorn; hell, I've been passed over for jobs both for being too young and inexperienced and for being yet another partially fosssilized straight white dude. And I didn't come from a place of privilege, at least as far as us white Americans go. For the former reason I can see telling guys the age of Winer that maybe it's time to make room for some of the younger folks. As for the latter...hey, all I'm asking for is a chance to prove myself on my own merits, same as everyone else. No amount of contrition will change the past. All I can do is promise that I won't be an asshole and will treat you like equals if you'll do the same.
