Digitizd is here to save the world from more of that.
What is Digitizd?
The world is increasingly technical. Whether we’re with our friends and family, at work, or anywhere else doing anything else, digital technology is creeping into every aspect of our lives. That technology has the power to make our lives easier and better, but there’s a problem: most people don’t know how to use it. Most people fall along the spectrum of these three things: most people either don’t know the technology exists, don’t know what it’s good for, or don’t know how to make the most of it.
Digitizd was created to help move people along that spectrum, to help everyone find, understand, and utilize the incredible technology that the Internet and other advances have brought into our lives. Whether it’s showing you new things or helping you use what you’ve already got, this site is all about the technology that has an effect on our lives.
This isn’t the only site out there trying to help you make the most out of technology – there are a million others, and a lot of them are really good. Most of them, though, are filled with jargon, acronyms, and are written by techies, for techies. The hope for this site is that it’s for anyone and everyone, and that no matter what you do or know there will be something interesting for you here.
