    That's not surprising. Most students on the Internet can't write either.

    I can understand why this is. My theory is that most teachers and parents probably don't know how to use the internets very well and therefore their charges cannot learn from them. So therefore it takes years of trial and error for the generation growing up with a strong internet presence.

    Ayup.

    Honestly, until the generation that are mostly teenagers now become the age to be college professors there's not going to be a broad education on computers and the internet.

    My wife's the VP of a large company's IT department, and her 22 year old little brother has been teaching us shit about computers since he was 12. He just knows it instinctively like teenagers in the 70s knew how to rebuild their car engines.
