@nitinkhanna Wonderful piece and a wonderful outlook. I won’t sully it with a typical felicitation as it is way beyond that.
@nitinkhanna Great piece. I’ve been thinking a lot about ageism lately. There are so many preconceptions and prejudices, in both directions. A classic from my youth: “Don’t trust anyone over 30.” 😂🎂🥂
@macgenie and how did that work out? Honestly, I only ever heard that in American movies and TV. It was a funky thing to hear... like, why would you not trust them? They're elders after all.
@nitinkhanna @macgenie i think the fact that they were elders is why? Feels like a hippie/post-hippie kinda thing, though I bet it hit the tech world as well.
I turned 40 last month and it felt kinda big in a less happy way than 30 did. ¯_(ツ)_/¯ embracing it now though! 💪
@jw Turned 42 at the start of this year and know what you mean. The numbers themslves become relative after a while and the focus becomes "what do I want to do now independent of what age I am?".
@jw we're not meant to breeze through life, but hitting decade starters shouldn't be any reason to not enjoy a birthday 😊
@nitinkhanna Because the elders were sending the youngers to war in Vietnam, and couldn’t explain why. (Not that I’m old enough to remember, or anything...)
