97-year-old visits Google
I would have liked to have been an engineer, but my father was and he discouraged me.
He said they'd never hire a woman.
97 year old Olive Horrell grew up in a time long before computers.
We had no electricity.
Olive had one wish, to visit Google.
To me it's a epitomy of all the wonderful tech stuff that comes out.
Olive's wish was granted by her assisted living community Brookdale and the organization Wish of a Lifetime.
From a driverless car, to virtual reality, Olive wasn't just searching Google, she was touring it.
[LAUGH] This is fabulous.
Oh my gosh.
Yes I'm seeing something.
Oh my gosh.
When, Can you possibly tell me what up there that's so vacant to me you call a cloud?
The cloud is basically a computer that I don't have to hold in my hands, but I have access to.
Just like that?
Push a button and you have history right in front of you.
Oh, my gosh.
To the right you can look around.
[LAUGH] You mean all the way around.
I'm absolutely terrified.
Yeah just don't mess up.
You see when I was growing up if you ran outside the curves you
No here you have to draw outside the lines-
It's a part of our job.
Oh isn't that amazing.
I'm like a little kid.
Where are these coming from?
Even though Olive was wowed by all this new technology, she thinks people these days spend too much time living through their smart phones.
I think they're missing a lot.
I think they're missing a great deal.
Look at life.
