I've never heard of anyone giving themselves a special subculture name on account of Sailor Moon. Otakus, anime fans, eggs, weeaboos maybe, but nothing like Broonies or Brouts.

SPK - in regards to CIWB's car comment, the precise reasons why the common man has lost his ability to work on cars is irrelevant; interesting, worth examining, but irrelevant. It is sufficient to establish that this *has* happened, that our rapid Eloification in regards to a new technology is a historically identifiable pattern with plenty of precedent, and you seem to agree with us that it has. Nor am I seeing how your breakdown of the car situation weakens the analogy with computers. Modern computers are not simple devices. They certainly appear simple from the outside, but you strip away the veneer of usability and experience-based design, and it can appear every bit as intimidating as a modern car. (My engine might be complex as hell, but I drive automatic!) Furthermore, a _direct_ comparison can be made between engine parts that require proprietary tools to work on them, and an increasing number of devices, in particular, almost everything Apple makes these days. Hell, even my own tablet, a Samsung device, has a welded backplate; they do not allow me to change or replace my own battery, even though I know how to do this. Even with the skills to repair my own device, the company has made in-house servicing mandatory.

Hooker - I think you misunderstand our position. No-one is claiming that children need to know how to *build* a computer, or at least I'm not, and I don't Mr Bolt or Mr CWIB are, either. They needn't even be able to repair their device, per say, although being able to make repairs is certainly a good sign. Rather, as Mr Bolt said, it is about the ability to troubleshoot and approach tasks you _don't_ know how to do in a logical, methodical manner. I'm no computer genius, there are plenty of tasks on devices both modern and ancient that I don't know how to complete off the top of my head, but I can usually work the solution out within a minute, often within seconds, as I'm sure most of us here can too. The problem is less one of specific skills (although these are important), and more one of methodology and philosophy.

Now, I know, there's a natural objection here: what about the numbers? After all, back in the day computers were the sole reserve of geeks. People who owned computers tended to be from the brighter and better educated segment of the population, and those of us who bothered to own computers at this early stage were usually very curious about them. Overall adoption rates were low, but those who did adopt the technology, were well-suited to mastering it. Nowadays, almost everyone owns a handheld computer. Adoption rates are much higher, but the number of people who belong to the "tech-inclined class" has, presumably, stayed the same. If five out of every hundred children are motivated enough to learn about computers, and only these five children actually own computers, then obviously the average computer owner will appear to be proficient. If ninety-five children own computers, however, then the five motivated ones will be in the minority, and the average computer owner will appear to be unproficient. So maybe that's all it is? Kids only *appear* to have gotten dumber, because now dumb kids are using computers too? Well, I'd reject this argument. It may indeed play a part in skewing our perception, but I'm not so sure it's wise to be dividing children up into sets of "naturally gifted" and "naturally non-gifted", and at any rate it fails to address the very specific, design-oriented flaws pointed out both in that article and elsewhere. Even if most of the problem can be poo-poo'd away as a just a perceptual quirk caused by the shifting nature of generalizations, the fact remains that even those children who would have been gaining proficiency are having their growth hindered by increasingly restrictive, opaque, and convenient designs.



Gmork and Caminante - you guys looking forward to Season Five? I don't know if I can wait that long!

My first was a C64 that my mom bought. The first one I really remember was an Apple LCII; my dad got it as part of a faculty grant, and he kept it loooong after he should have upgraded.

CIWB- pretty much. I know my grandparents could fix the fuck out if their cars; their cars were powerful, exotic, temperamental, and sometimes downright stupid. Anyone their age who owned a car HAD to learn at least some intermediate-level skills. Now, we're pretty clever if we know how to change a tire on our own; only dedicated automotive professionals will want or need to develop skills beyond that. Now it's happening with computers, and, in another twenty years, it'll be happening with our Google neural implants and home-model VR holodecks.

Stars for RockBolt and his link. Kids may have more access to technology now than in the past, but they're not learning how to use it, or rather, they're not learning how to troubleshoot and approach problems from new angles. Like that one kid says in this video, they know how to use Google, they know how to use Youtube. That's pretty much it.

We're becoming a society of Eloi. Fat, touchscreen-loving, Facebook-addicted Eloi.

I never really liked Manson as a teenager. I was totally his demographic, but I refused to listen to him. He introduced me to being a hipster instead.

I don't see the difference between this and old Manson. And no, while it is bad, it is not GnR bad. "GnR level bad" is not a phrase that should be used lightly.

I'd also like to say that I love Budweiser. Not because I like to drink it (I don't), but because it convinced me of two things at a very early age. One, beer tastes revolting. And two, if I drank beer, I'd grow up to be a doofus like all the assholes in their commercials. I'm almost completely clean and straightedge today, thanks in a large part to this commercial and others like it.
