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 UI is part of that engineered experience mentioned above, and there's little natural, or inevitable, or instinctive about it or using it.
People who know how to use interfaces *have learned them*, often by being trained.
Even very commonplace interfaces can be confusing to first-time users:
A UI makes assumptions about goals and understanding, and has limitations from devices, programmers, size, and controls. The UI is not reality but a representation.
