Generation C -- a generation for the ages.

One of the most viewed video bloggers (vlogger?) on YouTube is an English gentleman in his seventies. His first video alone has been viewed 1.9 million times.

That is the thing about the creative economy. Forget all of the rules. Democratisation of the tools (low-cost video and editing tools. desktop publishing, cheap computing and  broadband) mean anybody might enjoy a runaway success, regardless of age, gender, geographic location or ... talent.

There are no boundaries. For once a generation that spans all ages.

Rest homes could well be the next Weta Workshop.

I can’t see why not.

Go forth. 

Create.

I do.
