No I Will Not Fix Your Computer

Geek Luddites

Think of how many people are so afraid of their PCs that they only do the bare minimum with them and never venture into unknown territory because they’re afraid of “breaking” their computers. How many of them recently bought iPads and have become much more confident and adventurous with usage and applications, since Apple tricked them into thinking that the iPad isn’t a computer?

(I don’t want to fix mine, either.)

I love the term that Marco has coined in his title. Luddites rejected technology on (religious) principle, and I’d love to reject unnecessary complexity with the same fervor.
