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 7. Though we call them "computers", much of what computers do involves _communications_. You might think of them instead as "communicators".
Text, sound, speech, pictures, video, data, and software (apps, programs, scripts, games) are all forms of communication, sent to or from your device.
Inputs are received, stored or retrieved locally or remotely, processed or transformed, and sent as output. Over networks, but also to/from keyboards, displays, mics, speakers, cameras,.
