  • Can you capture something you see on your screen and paste it into Word or PowerPoint? Do you have a blog ? Can you open a link you get in an email message? Do you read more than five blogs a day? Do you have a signature in your outbound email? Do you have an RSS reader ? Can you generate a PDF document from a Word file you're working on? Do you know how to build and share a simple spreadsheet using Google Docs ? Do have a shortcut for sending mail to the six co-workers you usually write to? Are you able to find what you're looking for on Google most of the time? Do you fall for internet hoaxes and forward stuff to friends and then regret it? … Can you imagine someone who works in a factory that processes metal not knowing how to use a blowtorch? How can you imagine yourself as a highly-paid knowledge worker and not know how to do these things ... If you don't, it's not hard to find someone to teach you. http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2008/10/the-growing-pro.html The growing productivity divide
