Boomers & Gamers

Aries (Godess) points me toward an OCLC report on Staying in the Game. It suggests, among other things, zoning your library for boomers and for gamers:

Gamers are technologically savvy and can take in multiple streams of information while they socialize. They multitask! They need a space with all kinds of simultaneous activities—music, television, video streaming, computers. They thrive on all of the commotion. The Boomer zone should be much quieter. They need technology and service but not the noise.

This, along with a number of the bulleted points of advice in the short article, seem to be equally valid in designing a web site. Or, for that matter, a college course — especially in a grad program that gets an equal mix of Gamers and Boomers.
