Re: 50 is the new 60
Anecdotal evidence suggests that keeping current with technology should ensure a long career. 

Sadly, industry practice is also well documented. Anyone over 40 is viewed as a cost, not an asset. Companies prefer to avoid costs. Until managers videw older workers as experience that can be purchased at a discount, expect no change to industry practice.

An ass for every seat or a seat for every ass
I traded a broken down car once.  I asked the salesman if they were going to junk it.  He said no in our business we say there is an ass for every seat.  In IT, there is a seat for every ass.  You just have to find it.  I am 74 and have never been un employed.

50 is the new 60
Maybe a side issue, but I would just say that once you're the wrong side of 50 you should try to avoid wearing a hoodie in a workplace scenario. It's unseemly.
