Best Advice for 1st Timers – Before Taking Your 1st Computer Workshop/Class

If you know someone who wants or needs an “exceed expectations” introductory computer keyboarding class text, there is a special workbook/textbook that is continuously updated to meet the tech needs of hunt & peckers and beginners. The book is on Amazon now:

Computer Keyboarding 2-Week Basic Training Camp for Hunt & Peckers and Beginners

Thanks for reading this. I certainly believe, based on 12 years of experience teaching tech classes at senior centers and colleges, that all students and parents will benefit from this very inexpensive text/work book.

The Most Wonderful Wonders – The Smartest Ville

     “I bought a smart phone to make me smart, but I ain’t got smart too good, yet? But. I did quit smoking that Smart cigarettes cause I likes the Beets Cigs brand better now.”

In the town of Smartville 2118, smart cars drive and fly themselves around with and without passengers. Smart phones do not exist anymore because they did not make purchasers any smarter as shown by the grammar in paragraph one.  People talk via tattoo like skin patches to cars, houses, and petnoids. Petnoids is a new term, I just copyrighted meaning a conversational, thinking, robotic, synthetic pet animal usually accompanied by a human or humanoid.  Some humans even chat romantically with a humanoid Mr. or Mrs. Right—the newest trophy digital life partner. A humanoid is part human and part machine.

“Chance, let me see what is going on in the children’s play space.” The name of this Nano-house is Chance. The house can only care for its 2 homeowners and up to 2 children. Children can be human, humanoid, and synthetic. I see that this newest Nano-tech housing development is magnificently teched-out with its own artificial intelligence operating systems for everything needed for activities of daily living. Strangely, there are no pharmacies like there used to be on every corner. There are mega-senior centers that look like Disney magic kingdoms and church buildings still around, though. It is enough to make one wonder how we ever survived the prehistoric, non-Nano-tech digital ages!
