Now it is time to get your own wings

Masako Wakamiya | TEDxTokyo 2014

At the age of 60, Masako Wakamiya (also known as Ma-chan) decided that she would teach herself how to use a computer so that she could stay connected after retirement. In 1999, she and her friends established a website for seniors called Mellow Club. She now runs the Mellow Denshoukan, a digital archive of personal experiences as told by those who lived through World War II and the post-war period. The site was recognized at the United Nations World Summit Awards in the E-Culture category for Japan. Ma-chan now carries out online and offline activities with seniors’ computer clubs around the world.
