One possible aspect of ageism: it may be harder for someone
older to break into the field. At least in my area, it
seems that tech writers under thirty have an easier time
getting permanent jobs.

Of course, that's true of any career change--and maybe,
having arrived in the old age of my thirties, I'm just
looking for an excuse for not immediately establishing
myself as well as I'd like to.
