The second takeaway from the meeting was the way in which
the three chapters worked together for a common goal by developing
a community service project. The aim of this project, called, is to bring technology to seniors so they can use
it in their own communities. This idea strikes close to home, as
many of us have parents or other elderly relatives who are learning
to use computers, e-mail, and the Internet. Several attendees told
stories about the challenges of getting their parents a computer
and how long it takes them to be comfortable with it. They were
excited to connect with other people in their field who are dealing
with this issue.

The second speaker, Richard Pew of BBN Technologies, spoke
about a National Research Council report with which he is involved
that explores the potential of recent technological advances for
improving the lives of the elderly.

The meeting was the first in a series of events that will culminate
on May 1, 2004, with volunteers from the three organizations
working in teams with seniors groups around Boston. The specifics
of the project are being defined, and we look forward to more
connections with this new and energizing community.
