This is sobering

by John Wilker in Business, Technology

Dave twittered this, and all I can say is wow. Some of the stats I had heard/seen at defrag last year, but the rest, were, well, wow.

It’s incredible that we’re producing so much data now, that we can’t even consume it all. What’s really sad, clearly america is losing.

I’m anti breeding like bunnies, but sadly most other countries aren’t. On top of that, they’re making smarter babies than we are. I mean, what’s the value proposition of a 4 year college, when what you start learning is worthless when you graduate? Other than being $100k in debt of course. We either need to make college relevant, or stop pushing it on kids. Sure you learn how to learn, but WTF, any moron can figure that out, ask an entrepreneur. Everyone I meet that’s pro college education, uses “learn to learn” as a main reason, for $100k, I really hope there’s more to it.

I freely admit, i’m a college drop out, I was a CS Major for 2 years

Hopefully the president get’s a link to this video on his super secure, NSA crackberry and watches it.

    I still boggle at the concept that it took – I'm estimating – a dozen or so developers, designers, managers a good 9 months to build IE 4. I can, in the space of maybe 10 minutes, build a browser that has as much or more functionality all by myself.

    Now imagine that many of the projects that we slave over today for months will be drag-drop-publish in 5 years.
