Obsolete skills

Posted on February 20, 2008

As people make advances every day in technology, we also lose stuff that we don't need to know anymore. When was the last time you rewound a videotape? If you can think of anything you don't need to know anymore, check to see if it's on this list of Obsolete Skills.

I don't agree with all of them (you still need to know how to compute sales tax if you are a business owner!), but it's a pretty good list nonetheless.



I added "Text Editing with 'vi'". Although it is still widely available as a text editor, so is a VCR. That doesn't mean that anyone should use it!
