Micro Persuasion writes that Marriott Hotels CEO Bill Marriott does not use a computer but he started a blog (by dictating posts). He will soon be 75.

Studies show that staying intellectually active as we grow older, preserves "brain power" and delays onset of dementia. A new Canadian study indicates that knowledge of more than one language (lifelong bilingualism) delays the onset of dementia by 4 years (via Slashdot).
