I am 43, and for the most part am surrounded by people who are pretty literate when it comes to technology. By this I mean they have a computer, know how to turn it on and off, create, open, save files, and also own a smart phone of some type. But there is a small subset of people I know that are basically illiterate when it comes to technology. They refuse to get an email account for whatever reason, and instead rely on the phone to communicate all the time, they are still stuck on CD's as a medium of exchanging music (Im talking about non commercial releases here), as far as I am concerned CDs are pretty much obsolete as a medium of trading files, and make absolutely no effort to learn how to use this technology that is very widespread now, and in other 5-10 years will be even more present in our every day lives. This was brought home this past weekend when a band I play in gave me a list of a bunch of tunes they have in their repertoire. It was handwritten on no less than 5 separate pieces of paper, was rife with errors ranging from things spelled so incorrectly that I have no idea what it is supposed to be, to songs that were duplicated on each piece of paper. In all fairness these guys are 50 and up so are about ten years my senior, but most of this stuff really is not that hard to learn how to use. What the heck are these guys gonna do in another ten years when being technologically illiterate is going to be even more of a handicap than it is now???
