I came across an article the other day that I didn't save, but that's not important. Written by a Sears executive, the article gave suggestions to seniors in the workplace. The thrust of his suggestions was that seniors look to the 20-somethings to help them keep abreast of technology. Two things came to mind. For one, I don't know why anyone would assume that a senior who is still in the workplace wouldn't already be abreast of the technology needed to do the job, and I found that to be rather insulting. Secondly, why would anyone from Sears feel qualified to school the rest of us on new technology? Sears had the marketplace and, had they kept abreast of new technology, they would have never allowed Amazon.com to beat them at their own game. Instead, they depended on catalog sales too long, and then they stuck with big box stores too long. Now their stores are closing and, when you try to buy something from them online, they won't deliver large items more than fifty miles from their nearest store and, for other items, they charge an arm and a leg for shipping and take their own sweet time to do so.
