Managing editor Andy Serwer posed this question to a group of Silicon Valley technology leaders this past week. Om Malik, senior writer for the blog Gigaom reports that Fortune wants direction on the next technological frontier. I suggested in the comments that they consider discussing a network designed for Empty-nesters. Not a “Facebook for old Farts”, but more of a Ning for family events. I think Fortune needs to discuss the creation of the virtual family room, or a spot on the web where families can reenact all the wonderful events that have built their family albums and parental memories. Fortune has built its fortune speaking to the Baby Boomer throughout the years. Their discussion of technology should help them find a way to connect with their internet savvy generation Y children. Years of great memories in these families can and should be extended by a well positioned network. So Fortune – Where is the empty nest network?
