24-years ago this week…

…I graduated from Prospect High School in Saratoga. Thanks to fellow student Jeff Battaglia for reminding me of that.

Damn, it’s weird to realize that nearly everyone who works at Facebook was parented by someone around my age. It’s doubly weird to think that we’re bringing a new life into this world. Kids keep you young. Well, I certainly wouldn’t have known that World of Warcraft runs better on Windows XP than on OSX or on Vista if it weren’t for having a 13-year-old in the house.

Puts this whole age debate that has been raging this week over on TechMeme in a little different light. Damn, that’s the most worked up I’ve seen the Blogosphere in at least a week. Heheh.

Anyway, this debate between the youngins and the old is as old as life itself. I want to get involved in this whole debate, but I’m getting old and have learned that when it’s sunny in Half Moon Bay we best go outside and have a BBQ and enjoy the sun. So, I’ll leave this debate to the professionals. 🙂

Hope you’re having fun.

UPDATE: I couldn’t stay away. Anyone who thinks that old people can’t come up with innovations, or new ways of looking at the world, or can’t understand Facebook should go have dinner with Douglas Engelbart. He’s 82 if I remember right and I’ll put his brain against Mark Zuckerberg’s any day of the week.
