Don Park’s “demonstration(A Glimpse of Blogging in the Near Future)”:http://www.docuverse.com/blog/donpark/2003/08/05.html#a794 of the future of blogging brings to mind a patron I was helping a few minutes ago to use our PAC. We have actually been at this for several weeks. This is a knowledge, intelligent well-read elderly lady. But she is lacking in the two skills our PAC is geared around: utilizing a mouse and entering information on a keyboard. There are so many features and capabilities there for those who know how to use them, but the learning curve is extremely steep for those without them. And I don’t think there is an easy answer. Hopefully, though, with time, the issue will fade. Last week, I helped a friend’s cousin setup her new computer. The most excited member of the family was their 3 year old daughter. She couldn’t wait for the computer to be setup. But she did keep herself occupied somewhat with the empty computer box while we finished getting everything in place. I learned last night that she has spent more time on the computer in the last week than her parents. Her two favorite things: “Barbie.com(Activities and Games for Girls Online!)”:http://www.barbie.com/ and her SquareBob Spongepants “screensaver(Undersea Screensaver)”:http://www.nick.com/games/game.jhtml?game-name=ss_spongebob.
