A normal person. IE, a technologically illiterate person who can start their browser and visit a website, but not much else.
Contrary to popular belief, this term is not
derogatory, or indeed, a value judgement in any way. It is merely descriptive
and only descriptive of their ability relating to tech. A normal will often provide better bug reports, for example, than the self-proclaimed "moderately technically competent". A normal could potentially
become a geek, or even a hacker, they just have no interest in doing so.
For derogatory descriptions of people, see hipster, twat, luser, thrush, whinger, and gobshite.
