Computer stress

Passwords. Indecipherable language. Geek speak. Pop-up Windows. Extensions. Social media.

It's wearing us out (at least me).

I once worked on a book called Toward a Psychology Programming. The title intrigued me. Who is writing this computer code? Back then, in the 1990s, I was trained on what was called HTML coding (how to translate words and characters to create a Web page or posting). 

Now you don't have to use arcane codes, but things are not much better. As we slide into all apps all the time, the stress level of us the user is rising. That's unless you just get bitter and start shouting angry words like the old man on the lawn.

It's a brave new world and we need good teachers and students.
