I'm always interested to hear how people my own age are doing.
Logically, I know that people are so diverse from one another that I'm not going to observe meaningful patterns or draw valid parallels.
Nevertheless, keeping an eye on my age mates gives me some gauge of how I'm moving through time.
Consequently, I've decided to make a list of people born in 1962.
Wikipedia does have such a list, but it includes thousands of people from several countries and notable for a variety of achievements.  Admittedly, I don't recognize the vast majority of these notable people.  Trying to read every entry on that list proved overwhelming.
I thought that a list of 40 or so people my age would be adequate.
