Five years ago, I didn't know what the term techie means. Then I started working with techies...so now I often hear the words like wifi, skypilot, connectors, UTP, IP address, bandwidth, webhosting, email ad, SEO, affiliates, referrals and adsense to mention just a few. Although I still don't really understand these terminologies, at least I now have some foggy ideas what they are...like rubber boots are not what you think they are and rj45s and toolless jack something hehehe...But really, not knowing anything about computers and IT these days is quite hard on you. I mean almost everyone uses the computer and because of that, you're expected the you use it too. Imagine the pressure that assumption has on people like me five years ago...which reminds me of a story about a Mom begging her son to teach her how to use the computer. Finally, after so many pleas, her son gave in. He let her sit in front of his computer and said, "Mom, this is your login homepage. Now put your hand on this mouse and.."
Her mom unceremoniously stood up and said: just because I don't know anything about computers doesn't give you the right to make a fool of me. What does a rodent have anything to do with computers?
As to where I have read that story, that I can't remember...but the sadness, I can.
