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 - Security and privacy capabilities: SSL and TLS.
And more. Again, this is an overview, though a longish one. I'm skipping over much, but trying to point out the highlights.
The key idea is that you can start with a _basic system_ and build it up with _additional capabilities_ to create a much more capable, powerful, and useful set of tools, though the original ideas remain.
Sometimes we scrap entire tools entirely or go back to simpler or nonproprietary methods.
