I'd suggest it's age independent and more a result of the person's intellectual process - creative people tend to be that way their whole life. My ex partners, designers, etc., are still on the cutting edge (my partner from the previous enterprise, is doing kinetic, interactive sculptures and immersive LCD based art). Pick up a copy of Wired and checkout the source of the new, the leading edge, etc., it's a mix of creative thought from all ages and demographics. When we were working with iXL, Modem Media, etc., the stratification of people was amazing.Originally Posted by Bliss

I ordered a replacement sideburner a few weeks ago for our grill (we live at the beach, everything tends to dissolve ) and the company site I ordered from didn't clutter the experience of finding a simple item by part# with Flash, needless interactivity, and other "tech for the sake of tech" BS. I was a very happy consumer, so it did exactly what it was designed to do.
