Re: Americans Flunk Internet History
I don't think this is all that bad, and there are two reasons why. First of all, as plenty of others have pointed out already, a misunderstanding of internet technologies (or, anything) is often seen as par for the course for the average american. I suppose it's worth noting that this is basically a survery of Americans who use the internet and would bother to take a survey about the internet (like Michelle), which would seem to skew toward a certain demographic rather than just the general public. Still, many people probably couldn't even name all 50 states on the spot, or more than the first couple of presidents. It's not really that big an indication of anything in and of itself.
