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 11. Most people can't use computers very well.
Like _really_ not very well.
A 2016 OECD study finds that 2/3 of all people in _industrialised_ countries have "poor", "below poor", or NO computer skills at all.
About 5-8% _or less_ can make highly productive use of computers.
This has several consequences:
- If you're not good with computers, you have PLENTY of company.
- This is a learned skill.
- Computer and software vendors build for the bottom.
