This Circle

The Aging in Place Technology Meetup holds a series of regular Meetups at which Citizen Observers, Sharers and Makers come together to discuss specific challenges of growing older, and conceive of well thought through solutions.

This is a unique forum for exchanging ideas with others interested in this field. At our meetings, we typically get a mix of technologists and entrepreneurs and members of the aging services industry.
