I'm curious what the part of the post that says that Keas is looking for 
people who are "young-ish"/or young at heart means. I've already encountered 
in the computer industry a lot of age discrimination. You all should know 
that it is illegal. It is also immoral, and is no different from racism, or 
sexism, or any other method of turning people down for any reason other than 
their abilities. Older people need work too! What would you all think if 
Keas said they're looking for people who are "white-ish"? Companies get away 
with it because it is very hard to prove in court. Is this company putting 
such a policy in writing? Does their statement of what they're looking for 
mean that, for example, since I'm not a GenX, I have no chance whatsoever of 
being hired there, regardless of my programming ability?
