Geek Moment

Just sharing a bit of geek news. 40% of Americans are technology buzzword literate. Wow. I didn't realize that 40% of Americans were literate, full stop. Still, why would Mom & Pop, or for that matter, Timmy & Suzie need to know what RSS feeds are? Shouldn't they be able to plug into something ("Click here to get live updates" no mention of RSS) and use it without knowing exactly what it is? OK, apart from Nyarlathotep & myself, who that reads this blog can describe how a toaster works? I rest my case.
