Usability for Seniors

He has a page about Designing for Seniors that comes with helpful information and further resources.
I know this topic is of some interest to several of you. I've already printed it out for personal reference myself!

Bob's moved his page to: http://webusability....erly_9_2001.htm
Ergo/Gero seems to be gone. The page I referenced was a nice summary on how our vision changes as we age along with design guidelines on how to compensate somewhat for these changes. Anyone know of a good replacement?
I should add Older Wiser Wired (http://www.aarp.org/olderwiserwired/). They've made great progress in creating a resource for designers.

Are fairly large (at least 180 x 22 pixels for a graphic button), and
That's one heck of a button How large is the demographics of users of that age using the Internet? Also, if they do use the Internet, I'm sure they are not looking at SEO, Web Design, or Usability websites are they?
While the article makes perfect sense from the research, wouldn't this be something we already deduced from living life? When someone gets older their vision, hearing, reflexes, etc decreases in effectiveness
