@nitinkhanna Wonderful piece and a wonderful outlook. I wonโ€™t sully it with a typical felicitation as it is way beyond that.

@nitinkhanna Great piece. Iโ€™ve been thinking a lot about ageism lately. There are so many preconceptions and prejudices, in both directions. A classic from my youth: โ€œDonโ€™t trust anyone over 30.โ€ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐ŸŽ‚๐Ÿฅ‚

@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. ยฏ_(ใƒ„)_/ยฏ embracing it now though! ๐Ÿ’ช

@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?".

@Skematica I like that. And I'm working on it, too!

@jw we're not meant to breeze through life, but hitting decade starters shouldn't be any reason to not enjoy a birthday ๐Ÿ˜Š

@nitinkhanna Because the elders were sending the youngers to war in Vietnam, and couldnโ€™t explain why. (Not that Iโ€™m old enough to remember, or anything...)

@JoeHoffman Oh yeah... I recently saw The Post. Sad time for America, that.
