Man, the more I look into this stuff, the more it seems like whimpering in a ball in the closet and sucking my thumb is probably a rational response.
How does someone who doesn't know any of this tech stuff get up and going? I don't have time for a whole new education, but even if I did, all the training I've looked at involves buying a bunch of books or going to some seminar or some kind of thing. I look at tutorials, and they're already over my head right at the start.
Are there tech-heads of various kinds that do volunteer work for non-profits? I feel like telling all my local judges to keep their eyes open for a developer facing some kind of misdemeanor, and put him on community service with me, but unwilling assistance isn't likely to be very helpful.
There are free doctors, and lawyers, and soup kitchens and homeless shelters and dial-a-ride and home care for poor old grannies. I don't care what anyone says....technical web/network/computer services are not a luxury anymore. Are there any non-profit tech folks (besides tech-soup...they don't have hands-on help) functioning in the world yet?
Just wondering. It's a very scary world when you're techno-ignorant.
