User Education

What training will be required for general usage?

Ideally, some sort of license should be created. The same way we have a driver's license to share the roadway, a medical license to practice medicine, or a law degree to practice law. The licensing process could be handled by the D.I.S. (Department of Internet Surfing) in each major metropolitan area. Licensees would be tested for familiarity with one computer operating system, network and internetworking knowledge, and, of course, netiquitte! Each general licensee would be cautioned against using capital letters in email, sudden disconnections from remote computers, and surfing during `rush hours' on the net. A second license or training program should be established for the people who set up, configure, and maintain installations of networking software. Its one thing to use these systems and utilities. Just wait until you're trying to hook them up to the ethernet cable in you living room two years from now! (Good Luck!)
