Technology entrepreneur and social media superstar Guy Kawasaki is working with the nonprofit AARP to create a new web series about digital and social media, graphic design, innovation, and how technology can empower people over 50 called, “Technology: It's Not Just a Guy Thing.”

"Technology is a fantastic way to stay connected, relevant, and up-to-date on every level,” said Kawasaki, chief evangelist of Canva, former advisor to the Motorola business unit of Google, and former chief evangelist of Apple. “My goal is to evangelize technology because it can enhance so many people’s lives, including AARP's membership.”

“It's an honor to work with Guy Kawasaki, because he's such an iconic tech industry pioneer,” said Gil Asakawa, AARP/Asian American Journalists Association Social Media Fellow and the host of the web series, “His passion for technology is a perfect fit for AARP's focus on making tech accessible for everyone, including people who are 50+.”

Although the web series features two Asian Americans and is sponsored by AARP, Asakawa said that the web series is not limited to Asian-American seniors. “These videos are meant for curious audiences who want to learn about technology. The information that Guy shares is helpful for everyone, of every age, everywhere.”
