A kid puts his hand up. He tells me he’s got a virus on his computer. I look at his screen. Displayed in his web-browser is what appears to be an XP dialogue box warning that his computer is infected and offering free malware scanning and removal tools. He’s on a Windows 7 machine. I close the offending tab. He can’t use a computer.
How the hell did we get to this situation? How can a generation with access to so much technology, not know how to use it?
A great piece by Marc Scott. It really describes how ignorant society is about computers and the technology that people are so dependent on.
