WHO AM I AND WHY DID I CREATE THIS SITE
My name is Muhammad Sayyid and I am a certified computer repairman. I am now retired but from 1996-2000, I owned and operated a busy computer repair shop. I performed computer work for individuals and private and public schools in Washington DC and surrounding areas until leaving the region in 2000. During that time, I had the pleasure of showing quite a few folks how to use their computers fearlessly. They were of varying ages. Some had inadvertently gotten involved with computers, some had purposely done so. The problem was that, to all of them seeking computer training, using computers had been made to seem as technical and fearsome as possible, for whatever reasons. This did nothing to allay their fears and I spent many long days and nights building their appreciation for and calming their concerns about one of the greatest tools at man’s disposal today.
WHAT I HOPE TO ACCOMPLISH WITH THIS SITE
FreeBasicComputerTrainingOnline.com was born from past experiences. Unfortunately, several years later, the atmosphere around computing has changed very little. I would like to dispel these misconceptions and show computing as the fun that it can be. On this site, I intend to continue my efforts to dispel these false fears that have been instilled into the general public about computing and using computers. I acknowledge that the technology has changed and computers have evolved into even more widespread and amazing machines than they were back then . Now computing has even extended to using the common telephone. To that extent, though my efforts may be limited, concentrated on laptop and desktop computing, the necessity for understanding and operating computers will continue. If I can pass on the fearless appreciation for one of man’s greatest tools to just one person, my effort will not be in vain. Here’s to Fearless Computing!
