I am 57 and like many of the posters I too am involved in IT, but more to do with business process and analysis and have been since 2001. I have owned three companies over my career and when the size got too big for my liking I sold them.
However, I will say that I was having trouble getting a 'job' in IT when I was in my early fifties, so I incorporated again as a consulting company and have never looked back. I have many different clients and I set my own rates - much better than a 'job'. Don't be afraid to step out on your own - the current economy is forcing this - just make sure you do your due diligence and keep things simple to start, work from home and no employees.
One is only old if they think they are.
