The topic of age and innovation is a hot one.
There are some who believe that only the young can innovate.
Most of us over the age of 35 know this is complete nonsense.
Innovation (which is so important for a software company) comes from smart, thoughtful and creative people who see problems and love to come up with new and novel solutions - age simply does not factor into this.
So it was with great interest that while recently perusing a copy of MIT Technology Review (a must read if you care about new ideas) I came across an article about 7 outstanding innovators who continue to do what they do best - create, think and come up with new ideas - well into their seventies and even eighties!
I hope you enjoy the article and find it inspiring.
