The don't know what a VPN is ... but when they can't watch the Olympics on
the Internet from their own country, a buddy tells them about an "app" that
"makes you look like you're coming from a different country."  Now they can
watch the Olympics.  I saw this "one weird trick" spread like wildfire
through my non-technical acquaintances.

They don't have to know what a VPN is in order to to use it -- and to pass
it on to their friends.
