Editorial Recently, a story about people mistaking a news story for the Facebook login page has received considerable media attention. It's currently being seen by many as justification for the recent trend in locking people out of their computers for their own protection - but anyone with even basic mathematical skills and a calculator should come to the conclusion that this story has been blown way out of proportion.

The art of reading

The biggest problem is that people do not read. If one reads what is presented on ones screen, one knows what to do in about 98% of the cases.

Even my mother who is 89 years old re-installed Skype after a problem because it was clearly stated on screen that that would help, I quote "of cause I did that, I can read can't I". She is no academic.

So this has little to do with computers or geeks but with the simple capability to read.
