The Brutal Ageism of Silicon Valley

From the Big Think, another article about a currently hot topic, ageism in Silicon Valley.  This is written by Peter Lawler, who quotes Mark Zuckerberg “young people are smarter” and has many good reasons why it just is not so.  What happened to the wisdom that comes with age?  “A very old professor told me a couple of years ago:  “Every year I know more and more, and the students less and less.”  Me too.  I don’t quite agree with the guy who claimed that today’s young are “the dumbest generation,” but they sure aren’t as smart as they think they are.  (Well, it’s likely I’m not as smart as I think I am either.)”
