Not all techies are ageists!

Silicon Valley may not appreciate anyone over 22, but in Nashville this weekend they’re holding the second annual LeadingAge Hackfest. At this two-day event, intergenerational teams will compete to create “a technology-driven tool aimed at improving the lives of older adults and their families.”

While there’s a slight whiff of condescension in the sense that seniors are seen as the target consumers rather than the creators, at least the organizers are asking–and they’re respecting seniors as valuable contributors to team efforts.

Next year, we’d love to see an entire team of seniors kicking tech butt!
