In Information Technology and specifically Computer Science, the term "Grey beard" or "Greybeard" is used as a droll, sarcastic way to describe any person who is older. Typically, a Grey Beard in IT will be very specific about methodology and have well-reasoned arguments about why the methods they are using are superior to current ideas and methods. Many times, they're not wrong!
