re: IT Age Discrimination Or Employee Inertia?
I couldn't agree with you more and I'm even pushing a petition to end age discrimination in the software industry.

The problem is, many firms are not even interested in interviewing people that are well qualified and can bring decades of experience to the table as in the case of a EE that I recently featured at Keep America At Work.

I myself am teaching myself PHP/MySQL so that I can maintain KAAW and use them to build Buried Where in the coming months.

All of this stuff can be done on a person's off time, but it is much easier to learn when you're not wondering where your next penny is coming from.

If we have people that can no longer cut the mustard, let's do like we always did and find them a position that they are better suited for.

But to destroy the sovereign state of your own country like we are doing is the absolute worst thing that we could be doing.
