Or are older people who just don't think to use the internet that way. My father, who is a programmer, was cursing up a storm one day when I was visiting him. He was hasing a problem getting something to work and I asked if he had posted it on a board yet. He looked at me baffled and I had to explain that there are hundreds of boards for any programming language that you can think of with people who are more than happy to help. He had an answer in under two min.
My dad has been programming since the days when programs were written with punch cards. It just never dawned on him that complete strangers would be more than happy to help or would put solutions to their problems out for anyone to see.
I am willing to bet that 7% is older baby boomers who have been around since computers began.
