Welcome to my personal domain. I became involved with the Internet in 1996, putting up my first web site in 1998. However my involvement with computers began in 1981 then national networking in 1985. A history of my computer experience may be found here. My main site since 2001 has been IrishSecure.com.
My current two projects are getting people to blog through OlderCitizens.com / .org / WordPress, MatureCitizens.com and YoungerCitizens.com I am an admin of an associated Forum at http://FellowsForum.thersa.org (Not launched yet)
Blogging increases digital literacy and research has shown that this is a good thing. It is creative, you can create a network of like minded individuals regardless of geography. You learn stuff like basic hypertext transfer protocol (http://) The language / code that powers the web. and its not difficult. Everyone should have a blog.Get one here its free
The Forum I am an admin of is The RSA Fellows Forum. If you are not a Fellow you can join my Forum which is built on the Discourse engine. Its a lot of fun, make your voice heard. If you are an older citizen or support staff have a look. Its only a couple of weeks old.
