A mere mortal is fundamentally a non-techy type person. Among developers, administrators, implementors, and architects, they look like functional illiterates. They are not proficient as writing, understanding, or even hacking code. They get very nervous when executing most unix commands, afraid that they are going to break something and become stranded. They are extremely dependant on clues within documentation that imply (in simple terms) what's really basically going on in the machine. When they see any code, they have a hard time parsing it. They may waste hours and days trying to do something incorrectly, simply because they don't understand what they are being told. However, they might just be willing to try to do some things if they can make sense of them (e.g. implementing a simple wiki engine).

MatthewSimpson: I know about these people, because I'm one of them.
