INTRODUCTION.

SINCE COMPUTERS AND THE INTERNET BECAME CONSUMER PRODUCTS (MID 90's) THEIR USE HAS GROWN EXPLOSIVELY .

THIS HAS CREATED THE EMERGENCE OF A NEW PHENOMENON : THE COMPUTER ADDICT AS A DISTINCT GROUP .

A VARIANT OF THIS GROUP IS THE COMPUTER NERD .

A VARIANT OF THE COMPUTER NERD IS THE GLOBAL MIND COMPUTER NERD .

IN THE LAST DECADES OF THE TWENTIETH CENTURY COMPUTER NERDS MAY STILL HAVE BEEN A COMPARATIVELY SMALL GROUP .

HOWEVER, I FEEL IT IS QUITE SAFE TO SAY THAT FROM THE START OF THE TWENTY FIRST CENTURY COMPUTER USAGE HAS BECOME ALMOST COMMON .

EVEN NOW COMPUTER IGNORANCE CAN ALMOST BE COMPARED WITH THE INABILITY TO READ AND WRITE A CENTURY AGO .

ONLY THE LESS FORTUNATE (OR THE LESS PRIVILEGED) WHERE EXCLUDED .

THUS , WHAT USED TO BE A COMPUTER NERD HAS NOW BECOME AN ALMOST NORMAL PERSON .

TO BE A "REAL" COMPUTER NERD , YOU WOULD NOW HAVE TO BE A COMPUTER ADDICT .

A COMPUTER ADDICT PERHAPS EVEN WITH A PARTIAL ASPERGER’S SYNDROME .

 

IT IS DEFINITELY NOT SUGGESTED HERE THAT YOU IDENTIFY YOURSELF WITH THIS TERM . UNLESS IT GIVES YOU PEACE OF MIND .

AND PLEASE . . . TRY TO READ AND UNDERSTAND THE DEFINITIONS GIVEN IN THE TEXT ABOVE FIRST . . .
