Boomerater in Beta

This is a basic recommendation for Boomerater, which promises "Recommendations & Advice by Boomers for Boomers." I like the idea of it. I like the tone it's trying to establish. There's just not a bustling about it yet. The web publisher wisely labels the website as beta, which gives hope for things to come.

Building online community (and the advertising relationships needed to support the community) should be easier. At least that's the impression from the successful web communities. But baby boomers are more accustomed to receiving community (we were trained on mass media produced by professionals) than creating it (Woodstock and Summer of Love were not daily events, after all).
