"Bing Gordon said that if you want to be innovative don't hire 35 year olds...
What it means is that 35 year olds have a young family, a big mortgage and don't want to take risks...
We want to earn easy money; we don't want to try new things.
The 18 year olds are obviously full of risk taking but they become 35 and will still face that problem.
The 78 year olds paid off their mortgage, have failed several times in life, and are not necessarily scared of it.
They would be magnificent innovators and pioneers"
