It has been my observation that things which are new become better known when a generation has grown up, completely, with it and is teaching the next generation. Until that occurs, you are going to get one heck of a larger lot of uninformed users because they are not only young and clueless but every other age and clueless. Worse, they are clueless in a lot of cases because they are frightened by new technology. Eventually, it will become as common as a car on the road and at that point, taking obvious steps wont even be a topic for discussion any longer. When that happens, arts majors wont be the only ones serving fries at Maccas. Greg.
