What are some things that every computer user should learn? What things do you wish every computer user knew? What are some of the biggest benefits that individuals and/or society could reap if computer users learned these things?
Please boost, I honestly want as many serious answers as possible. Feel free to answer variations of the question for different levels of "computer users", such as programmers, office workers who use a computer 4+ hours per day, phone-only users, etc.
@willghatch 3. Computers rely on stored information that's both durable and fragile.
Any information on a computer is stored as a record... somewhere. Locally or remotely, in your device or across others.
That information can be copied and transmitted easily, which may or may not be what you want. Multiple copies may exist, which is helpful against accidental loss, but harmful when others get access in ways you don't want or expect.
Flash, memory, disk, files, cloud, are all data stores.
