    Okay… tell me what you guys think about this: studying the Baby Boomer generation and how they interface with technology. I am thinking to narrow things down to aspects of social media use and information consumption and sharing.

    • @aimee9 This is a good choice – very useful for info professionals to understand the information seeking and needs of Baby Boomers. Narrowing to technology us for info behavior is super interesting and I think there will be research in LIS and in the area of human computer interaction (HCI).

    • Hi @aimee9–I want to look at senior citizens, so maybe we can share sources of info w/ each other? @michael is that “kosher” as long as (obviously!) we are not doing the writing together, but just sharing information on the communities w/ each other?
