Seven Innovators Who are Doing Impressive Work in their 70s and 80s | MIT Technology Review

I am so encouraged by this article from MIT. It seems to me that we will more and more have to adapt to a world where work goes on for longer and longer.
This can be seen as a bad thing, that our children are being robbed of the ability to retire. But on the other hand ,the incredible innovators, entrepreneurs and academics who are the subjects of this article show that meaningful work (I.e. doing what you really love and are passionate about) need not stop at a particular time.
The world benefits from the continuing contributions of people who will only give up their work when they want to or of course nature makes the decision for them!
