TAO is both a placeholder for the Chinese ideograph 道 (Pinyin: Dào (help·info)), meaning way or method, and an acronym for Third Age Online. The main target of the project is to highlight the ways in which the access of older persons to the opportunities offered by online communities can be facilitated. At the same time, the project aims to profit from the growing number of older persons to advance charitable projects of online communities. - Learn more about the project by checking out its official website.
