Jeff Taylor, the founder of the successful Monster.com employment site and the unsuccessful boomer site Eons.com is going after death.
He thinks he can make money from a website that has obits.
Taylor, who founded Monster.com, finally realized that what his dwindling members wanted was a social network, not a portal for Sunsetters. Most of the intense activity was around the groups on the site, and so that is where he is focusing his efforts now. He also realized that nobody wants to go to a social network to be reminded about death.
The author of the post throws out all the ageist comments boomer bloggers have read dozens of times, summarized here:
- Boomers are old.
- Boomers are stupid.
I wish people that write about boomers could be more original. It’s more fun. Die Boomers Die hasn’t posted since November. I miss them.
Here are some topics for un-boomers to write about boomers:
- don’t know how to drive
- talk funny
- dress weird
- drive up the cost of pot
- are ugly
- don’t work hard enough
If you take on one or all of those topics, please link back. I’d love the chance to write about something other than being old an stupid.
