TECH: Oh Myyy! Star Trek’s George Takei Boldly Takes Over the Internet
LIVE LONG AND PROSPER
Star Trek fan that I am, how exciting to see George Takei soar to new heights with an enterprising web series that delves into the not-so-final frontier. At 76, the iconic actor and social media phenom has joined AARP for an adventure online with Takei’s Take on YouTube.
The show launched on Sept. 17 and features a little something for everyone as Takei navigates the tech world, pop culture, current events and Internet trends. With nearly 5 million likes on his Facebook page, Takei also is encouraging an older generation to embrace technology with abandon (translation: NO FEAR).
“My sister is one of those technophobic people. She doesn’t even have a computer,” Takei told People.com last month in an interview about the new series. “And I’ve been working on her.”
Takei’s Take updates twice a month, so what are you waiting for … subscribe already!
