SeniorNet from The Scout Report — August 5, 2005

Older persons have had many different websites aimed at their own special interests for years, but the SeniorNet site may prove to be one of the more interesting ones out there. As the homepage declares, the site is intended to “Bring Wisdom to the Information Age”, and this it does quite well. Visitors can peruse one of the main headings located on the top of the homepage, and the choices range from Technology to Volunteering. Within each of these sections, visitors can read brief articles about such topics as Alzheimer’s disease, reading for pleasure, and the benefits of volunteering. Visitors can also join one of the many lively moderated discussion boards. Some of the topics covered by such forums include current events,literature, pets, and finances. [KMG]
