  1. This is just one of my thoughts about the paper. Others can be found on my class blog. But how did the researchers in this study retain focus of older adults for an entire 1.5 hours? I’m quite jealous. The older adults I work with each week are so busy that they can rarely stay for 30 minutes.

  2. Will the privacy concerns brought up in this paper change because of changing views of privacy and technology, or will the technology need to become so good that people want it despite the inherent loss of privacy?
