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 This avoids some problems, but creates others. Information entered by you, or captured about you, in these systems, isn't easily available to you. This means you can't use it for goals you have that the system's designers don't.
And at the same time, they probably are using your information in ways that help them but hurt you.
The useful part is that _other_ apps can't access that information easily, which us usually a good thing.
