Although people lived their lives without being able to read and write, I think you'd agree that because reading and writing were made part of a basic education, quality of life has had an enormous potential to improve.
No doubt, but most people barely write shopping lists.

The skill of reading brought the knowledge of books to the masses. The skill of communicating with a computer has the potential to allow the masses to discover information, evaluate data, perform their duties with more efficiency than ever before.
I have a low opinion of those people, just try reading comments on news stories or even YouTube. The potential is there, most choose not to use it for good. I must say I've become very cynical and now regard education as a waste for many. They are taught facts, but not how to use them. Hopefully we will grow past that. They used to think television was going to bring education to the masses instead of "reality" shows.

Also, I find it interesting that a discussion of user interfaces have led to a discussion of whether or not people should know how to code. It would seem that non-computer users cannot differentiate the two.
I agree with that.

I just wish more people were learning to really program. The last ad my company placed looking for programmers had no respondents. Granted my boss was looking for MS Access programmers, but I would have thought there would have been someone willing to give it a go.

P.S. You might enjoy reading my response to Monster Maker's response, I won't come off as such a downer as I seem to have here.
