  • Here's an idea that would be well within most high school student's grasp...be a "internet guide" for older adults. There are many older adults who desire to get more out of their computer but don't understand how things like Facebook, Twitter, or e-mailing photos work. An ad in the paper or some postings on local boards should get some results.

  • Interesting idea and probably appreciated by those of us who are computer challenged. I called our then 19 year old daughter to help me with some html programming and she did it over the phone with no formal education. Darn kids these days.

    Just be sure to confirm who your young person is going to help. Better yet, have them meet in a public place.

    Sad sign of the times. :-(

  • I seriously think you could turn a one word blog post into a long winded rant. You have entirely too much time on your hands.
