The success of aged bloggers

Sabine Pamperrien puts an end to the myth that only young people use the Internet. She introduces three "very old" bloggers, among them Maria Amelia, a Spanish woman born in 1911 who has achieved Internet stardom with her 'A mis 95 años' blog and whose fame has even reached Korea. "But there's an even older blogger, the Australian Olive Riley. This old lady was born on October 20, 1899. The first entry in the blog 'All about Olive' was made on 16 February 2007. The renowned Canadian-Australian filmmaker Michael Rubbo records his conversations with her and posts them on the Internet... Enthusiastic emails from all over the world have flooded in, expressing admiration not only for the lady's great age but also her charm and mental alertness. Some commentators marvel as they count backwards. 'It's like travelling in time! I can't wait till we get to the 1910s and 1920s!'"
