I've posted a long report over at socialreporter.com about the SEEFA symposium last week on ‘Transforming not excluding – the impact of information technology and innovation on later life’ .
Summary: a symposium on innovation, technology and later life provides confirmation that many of the challenges to making use of tech for ageing better are organisational and cultural as well as technical. We have plenty of tech - the issues are how to personalise and support use appropriate to people's needs and situation. But ageing organisations can't do that if they aren't using social tech themselves, as John Popham has said before.
