Google Teaches Tech to Parents?

December 13, 2010

Radhika Marya reports over on Mashable.com that Google Launches Site for Teaching Tech to Your Parents. The site is http://www.teachparentstech.org/

Notably, the first tutorial on the site is Copy & Paste, which is one of the core concepts in my new book. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised that Google employees have found they need to teach technology to their parents, but I do find it just a tad ironic (since Google has earned its reputation on “cutting edge” technology). However, I’m thrilled someone else — epsecially such a large player — is realizing that there are other computer users in the world who need a little help with basic concepts. Speaking of which:

I’m thrilled to report that I’m in the final pre-publication stages with The Ultimate PC Primer. While I don’t think I’ll make my original deadline of “before Christmas,” I strongly supect the book will be available in January. Perhaps it’ll make a nice post-holiday gift for all those parents who were given a new computer or are still struggling to understand the one gifted in previous years.

Stay tuned.
