Ageism in Tech: Why Older Designers Are Better Than Younger Designers(medium.com)

    What struck me as odd about this article was that there wasn't a lot of evidence about companies not hiring older designers because of age. Did the author actually survey a bunch of companies? Or is this going off of hallway talk from people who are going off of assumptions and feelings? Are you in the the silicon valley bubble (let's be honest, the culture there is less than spectacular)?

    From my experience, I've seen a lot of companies prefer older designers, hence why companies look for "Principal" or "Staff" designers. It's very hard to get a job with little experience. For context, I'm based in San Diego so maybe we're just more chill down here.
