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 9. I've used (or will) the terms "data", "information", "records", "content", "transmission", and "stream" among others. These are all mostly equivalent and interchangable. They refer to what your computer creates, reads, updates, deletes, transmits, and receives.
Information at rest is a _record_, in motion is a _transmission_ or _stream_.
A _data format_ gives meaning to an otherwise unintelligible string of ones and zeros, it's what makes text, images, audio, video, etc.
