Not quite computer literate

I believe that by emphasizing the ease of use, companies like Microsoft have sucked all the reasons that a normal person would have to actually understand how to compute. Every one has one but very few actually know that they have an incredibly powerful tool. One that people 20 years ago could not even imagine.

The fear is that this I’d another reason why there is a continually widening information gap. Access to knowledge I’d unprecedented but without the knowledge on how to extract it, it might as well be in a vault. It is a new barrier like being able to read.
