Of course, computer literacy increases with each prior generation. Individuals my mother's age (60+) or say 50-70 are moderately to mildly proficient. Again, we're generalizing but you've got a lot of diversity within this subset.
I'm 57 and am pretty damn proficient with computers and with VoIP.
My wife is 57 and is a retired software engineer (IEEE and ACM member).
Bill Gates is also 57.
A lot of the younger generations don't stop to think of who MADE the PC and the Internet in the first place!
