Very Loudly

I’d like to say something, very loudly:

If you struggle to use technological devices and software, it does not mean you are “stupid.”

It means you are left-out of a clique; excluded and left-behind by a human culture.

These days, there are options for learning that are somewhat independent of the clique and the culture.

But once you learn, will you repeat the cliquey behavior of the people who were perfectly content to leave you behind?
