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 There's more to it than that (as there is of all the concepts I'm discussing), but the basics are:
- Hypertext contains _references_ to other documents. Those are URLs or URIs: Universal Resource Locators (or Identifiers).
- As well as suggestions ("markup") to the _reader_ (which we call a browser) on how to _format_ and _render_ the document.
- Which are a "language" for telling software and computers what the author intended.
- "Transmitted" between computers (usually).
