RE[6]: Aged 16 and upwards?

The definition of "right direction" is really very simple. It's the information necessary to find the information you want/need.

What information? How to use search engines?
Are you trying to say that people are so dumb that they can't even made a basic logic conclusions?

So even just expecting people to know that they might want to learn about programming is completely unreasonable.

I don't talk specifically about programming.
And I can't even believe in the existence of human who lives without any interests. I've never met such a people in my life.

It is simply impossible to perform a search for information that is undefined.

Are you live in total isolation? Did you see that people around (the globe) are doing?
I believe that something even our imaginary "human without any interests" will find interesting.

If you don't know what you want to learn then you can't learn it.

That's perfectly fine.
You're either feel hungry, or not.

The information depends on the topic. This really isn't that hard to figure out.

Programming was just an example (one that's relevant because it's what the article is about.) It applies to anything. If I've never done something then I can't know whether or not I'll like it. If I've never heard about something I can't research it (and nor can I know whether or not I'd like it.) This is very straight forward, why are you having issues understanding?

You don't have to live "in isolation" to not know about something. Nor do you have to be a "human without any interests" to not know what other interests you might have.
