Really? It's because of Google and the like that so many can build their own computer and learn how to fix them. Google can hook you up with places that you can find the info you seek. I have learned a lot of things about many topics by using Google. Sure, you won't earn a degree from using Google but at my old fart age I don't need another piece of paper to hang on the wall. And all this wealth of info doesn't require me to pay for a course and spending money on fuel to go to a class where the professor is going to put me to sleep.
