I noticed on another forum that some of the elders were very energized and invigorated leading up to the last election. The resulting disappointment made a few of them (me included) say "screw it. I give up" and they have retreated to  "leave me alone, I just want to get by" attitude.

I tend to use Facebook to keep track of people in my chosen profession ( the touring theatre world) because it's the easiest way to touch base with my friends who work on other tours. But I do keep up on this forum and the Smart car forum (I drive an '09 Cabrio when I'm at home) because the niche market community connections are important to me. For person-to-person and work-related communications, I stil rely on email, but it's not always practical - many times the internet connection in the theatre I'm working in or the hotel I'm living in is sketchy or just flat-out nonexistant.

Spot on.  I went out and bought a boat so I can leave at any time.   

Also this forum does not have an Iphone app that I know off.  Most of the sailing and Harley forums do.   No app means using a laptop and being at home.  All  things I seem to do less and less.
