"OMG!!! ITS THE END OF TEH INTERNETS OH NOES!!"...
The original home computer wasn't invented because it was out of the grasps of common man, who wanted a challenge. It was invented out of the innovation of a few brilliant minds.

Thats all technology needs. A few brilliant minds.

The iPod generation is just picking up the slack of the new home computing era. Just because a few, or even the vast majority of users cannot comprehend simple outdated technologies and advancements does not mean that further ones will halt.

As long as there is a place for new technology to be applied, a place where its needed, whether its the mass consumer market or not, it will come about. Businesses have no problem utilizing innovations. They will do whatever it takes to be as effecient as possible.

As the next generation is born and brought up, these sort of things will be so entirely second-hand that it would be laughable someone passes even middle school without advanced knowledge in computer technology and its uses.

Yeah, I don't agree with this guy, at least not with the points he brought up. It sounds like he thinks technology should be more difficult simply to make people experts more. That is stupid. Only people with enough time and brains should be able to use the internet? People who don't understand how some technologies work can still be very bright in other areas and use the internet in other innovative ways.

True genius is making difficult things simple, not just making difficult things work.

What it sounds like, to me at least, is this individual was really reaching for something to get attention with. The topic is frivolous and the conclusion borders on the absurd.

It almost sounds like the elitist talk I would hear from Comp Sci majors (no offense guys, I had lots of comp sci friends, they were just kinda, well....comp sci majors) and not something for an actual study.

Obviously you can't limit the internet to 'people with brains' but at the same time you can't spoon feed everyone. I think this is what the point of the article is - nobody figures out anything for themselves anymore. IMO The internet/devices are not to blame for this, there are many other reasons.

For an example: Half of any class back in high school had no idea what they were doing, they just plug numbers into a formula/etc. They don't grasp the concept of what they are actually calculating - and will never have to. (I also did terribly in school because I'm stubborn and the opposite of this - I refuse to memorize formula's and unless I can figure it out on my own, and do it right, I won't do it)

Jonathan Zittrain, a professor of Internet governance and regulation at the Oxford Internet Institute also said that the Internet-oriented gadgets don't allow users the same level of collaboration and cooperation found in home computers, and this should be regarded as an obstacle in technological advances.
Wow, this guy is smart

How si this an obstacle? Of course they are not going to allow the same level of collaboration.

That's like saying portable gaming devices are holding the gaming industry back. Far from it, it is flourishing.

I think this guy is an idiot. Ipods are not the fall of the internet*sigh* They are merely an MP3 player. So would this mean the music industry is in-directly contributing to the demise of the Intrawebz as well?

Please

I really hope that was a joke I'm going to keep my thoughts to myself because my sarcasm detector is playing up at the moment. I don't know whether you were being serious or not.

If I could change this a little bit, the same could be said for people and computers. Everyone on this forum probably built their own computer. Everyone knows whats inside it and can tell the difference between a PCI and AGP slot.

How many people can use a computer and never know whats inside one. And the first time something goes wrong, they re-install Windows/Vista and wonder why there is no sound or their video is not at the right resolution. Ask these people what chipset drivers are and get a blank look.
This is 2 tiered. Those that know what they are doing and those that don't.

No offense, but I have seen threads where people are so helpless, the first thing I think of is that they should take a computer class somewhere to get an understanding of there computer. To learn whats inside their computer and what each part does.
