William Shatner is not just strong, bold and honest with his television characters bit also in his real life. The world-renowned actor has launched a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to write and publish his new book 'Catch Me Up' that provides guidance for people, in particular those over 50 years of age on how to use the new technological devices to help their careers and lives. 
William Shatner as 'Captain Kirk'
 
The actor recently admitted in an interview (parts of it published by CBC books - November 26) that until recently he actually "hated new technology" and wrote on his Kickstarter page that "my 'smart' phone made me feel stupid". The actor who is known for being in charge as Captain Kirk and outlandish but honest as Denny Crane on "Boston Legal" was on the verge of being irrelevant as his kids had to show him how to use "Facebook" and for a long time he refused to even have an email account. 
 
His experience left him realizing that he could not afford to not know technology because he could not afford to be irrelevant and he did something about it and basically wants to give back to other older individuals who like him are probably on the verge of becoming left behind thanks to the technological world.

In researching for his book he met people who had discovered modern technologies that helped them find new career paths after being downsized or losing their jobs to younger employees with better tech skills. 
 
For those that wonder why a big star such as William Shatner would take the Kickstarter route instead of a big publisher it is because he did not believe that big publishers would be interested in the lofty goals that he had to help people, especially those over 50 years of age learn how to use technology to help their careers and lives. 
 
His Kickstarter campaign goal is $50,000 and he already has raised more than $25,000 of that amount showing that William Shatner is on his way to achieving his goal and similar to Captain Kirk is able to adapt to new things and use them to help others benefit. A true Captain in every sense of the word.
