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 14. The Good Parts
For all the scary stuff, computers can be useful.
A device you trust, control, have with you, interacting with standard formats and protocols, that you know how to use, that _doesn't_ leak data, spy on, tattle, or surveil you, can be extremely helpful.
It's a cliche, but you really can carry a supercomputer in your pocket, with access to the world's knowledge, and your friends, work, customers, government, and institutions.
Finding that device is tricky.
