Put me down in the “Boomers who liked it” column, Abbie. Maybe I read one too many articles about how different the Millennials are from their predecessors, while the examples cited make me wonder if the authors ever heard of the 60s?

But I’m also not as uptight about being an undesirable in the tech field. Being part of a small IT team in a small company in a backwater area, I have a job as long as the company stays afloat; actually, I have hopes of moving into a reduced hours position in a few years as I ease into retirement. I realize that makes me unusual among the tech types approaching 60, even as a white male with a college ring.
