    Another unrealistic survey, let me guess the 1/10 are the people that are homeless....

    Not sure who did this survey. maybe a room of geeks and a door man with no hands. I'm trying to get 50 people at a retirement home to learn the basics. most can't even work a mouse or know how to turn the pc on.

    This is a little misleading... I know quite a few people who use the internet because they have to, not because they like it. Everything is online now so people are forced to learn some of it and use it. There are a LOT of people out there with blue-collar jobs who went through school before typing was part of the lesson plan. The internet seems intimidating and pointless to them.

    That's because they watch too much TV and don't do anything actual thinking.
