Daniel commented on Your Grandma is Banksy

I recently saw an outdoor painting area for kids where they could paint on different structures. It would be interesting to bring younger and older generations into a similar environment.

I agree Lina - and bringing a usergen e-commerce site like Etsy into the picture makes it really exciting. The mentor relationship can benefit from the millions of dollars Etsy has already invested in creating a top-quality site to showcase the products. The youth could mentor the adult on how to use Etsy as well - thus empowering them to expand their offering. UserGen e-commerce meets micro-finance meets reverse mentoring.

This brings to mind a couple of things: 1) Youth mentoring adults on online security, and 2) GeriJoy - Virtual Care Companions I have to admit...I wanted the dog to talk as's a cute puppy - Ray, looking forward more ideas from you.
