The Learning Curve

New tricks for an old dog.

Tech savvy not

For many of my friends and people I work with, explaining the basic idea of an email filter, for example, is not enough education to have any practical impact.  Fear of pressing the wrong button and causing an unexpected software explosion, or breaking something, is too great.  It is necessary to explain the process step-by-step.  For some, even that is not enough.  It is necessary to do it for them.

There is opportunity in this.  Non tech savvy and tech phobic represent a significant portion of internet users, by my unscientific reckoning.  Lots of opportunity.

Yet, it is so frustrating.
