PEW report about older Americans' use of the Internet

New report from the PEW Internet and American Life report: Older Americans and the Internet
From the report: "22% of Americans 65 and older use the Internet.
The percent of seniors who go online has jumped by 47% between 2000 and 2004. In a
February 2004 survey, 22% of Americans age 65 or older reported having access to the
Internet, up from 15% in 2000. That translates to about 8 million Americans age 65 or
older who use the Internet. By contrast, 58% of Americans age 50-64, 75% of 30-49
year-olds, and 77% of 18-29 year-olds currently go online."
