The FCC is starting programs to attempt to make Americans more computer literate. Citing studies that show only 68 percent of Americans that have access to broadband Internet use it, the group is making a push to begin educating the masses. Best Buy has offered their Geek Squad in over 20 cities to work with Boys and Girls Club, 4H and Goodwill, and Microsoft has pledged to help with classes in schools and libraries. NYTimes
Well hell yeah, it is about time. As the above article states, nearly every big business requires an online application and FSM help me with his noodly appendage if I did not think that was some type of test to ensure the computer illiterate (or "computard") did not end up greeting people at Wal-Mart. So, here's to all the education that is about to be given to a dying generation. Hooray!
I also want to comment that I had no idea 4H still existed as I thought we had commercialized all cattle 20 years ago.
