Talk About Being ‘Digitally Reborn!’


As I’m sure you’ve heard us mention before, we bloggers here at OASL are what people are calling “digital natives.”  Lately, however, we’ve also been realizing that there are a number of folks out there who are being reborn digitally.

Check out this classic example:

Friend of mine and prominent vlogger, Steve Garfield, just informed me that his 82 year-old mother will be on ABC World News with Charlie Gibson in a segment about innovative retirement tonight.

Even at age 82, Millie Garfield has been blogging regularly and creating and maintaining a community of friends online – talk about being digitally reborn!  She represents one of the Internet’s oldest bloggers.

Tune in to ABC World News at 6:30 p.m. (coastal times) or 5:30 p.m. (central time) and watch for clips of Millie!  Steve will also be posting a behind-the-scenes video of part of her interview to her blog (, available once the segment airs tonight.

Be sure to also follow her Twitter updates @MillieGarfield.

Congrats, Millie!
