Tools for 'Old' People Technorati icon

April 10, 2007 | Filed under: Software I Like

In my world at least, so much of new product development on the Internet is about making stuff for young people. As my hair becomes greyer, it is slowly sinking in to me that there are huge numbers of people that need tools for 'old people' like I do.  For example, I just found this excellent product for families called Cozi. If you are looking for a way to co-ordinate your family's hectic schedule, give it a try.

Ever tried trying to convince a non-technical person to try Google Calendar? Cozi is simple and does exactly what we need and nothing more. The technology does not get in the way of the purpose.

My dad is a family history buff. He's eagerly awaiting the day someone produces web based software that allows the public at large to create a giant, searchable, linkable family tree, with sections to add historic details and pictures.

It would need to be simple enough for non-tech oldies and allow family tree posters to contact each other (email or an inbuilt forum) so people who discover they have ancestors in common can communicate.

Let me know if you ever come across anything like this (or anyone who's keen to start it up)?
