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 A "format" for _sending_ data is called a _protocol_, and provides additional _control information_ over what is being requested, how, by whom, and other information.
Formats and protocols are simply agreements on how to say or do things. They make computers and the Internet possible.
The Internet itself is _defined as_ a set of protocols for exchanging information starting with the Internet Protocol (IP) itself. "TCP" is the transmission control protocol", together: TCP/IP.
