I've been following Steve Outing's noble online exercise to reinvigorate the challenged classified section in the newspaper. It's a genuinely positive attempt to lend a community's assistance to a widespread problem.
His ReinventingClassifieds.com site has been bringing a lot of voices into the discussion. One of the most recent posts concerns how to redesign the section in order to accommodate an aging readership. He gets Jim Parkinson to help start a package that will culminate in a white paper of sorts on the matter. The interesting point: Better design for failing eyes isn't necessarily a matter of using larger typeface.
