It’s a philosophical and social corporate movement , a lifestyle , a new way of connecting and interacting with people, both inside and outside of the firewall; one where the main focus is not on the technology itself, but on the people behind it. Yes, I’m talking about culture.

Social Reporter

Summary: a symposium on innovation, technology and later life provides confirmation that many of the challenges to making use of tech for ageing better are organisational and cultural as well as technical.

From the symposium and tweeters: The lack of rural connectivity continues to be a huge problem.
