Re: [school-discuss] Gen Y not as interested in IT
And probably even more true 1.5 yrs later..
I think a devil's bargain was struck somewhere along the line that made
the average computer user pretty much the average citizen (with many
exceptions) ... I think it may even be called the WWW.
It serves to create a priesthood ... a dark mysterious group of people
who are uber-uber-geeky enough to go into the dark world of programming
... real programming.. to unearth great mysteries, and then condense
them for the masses...
It leaves the rest of the world at a disadvantage. I can't even FIND
my oil filter.
Pretty soon they'll be shipping computers glued shut w/ little litmus
paper and screw tape to show whether someone has had the audacity to
open it up and tinker...
