Know anyone who is heading for college?

11 08 2007

Wired magazine has an article on jobs that will be important in the future and how to prepare for them.

If you know a high school student who is trying to decide what to do with her life you might want to send them this pointer.

Among other things, the article suggests trying to finish college early (less debt, an earlier dive into the workforce) and becoming an entrepreneur as soon as possible. The story is well documented and a fun read.

Three Score and Ten or more

I enjoyed the article. Alex (you remember the little boy in Thirteen Clocks) is a project manager for Sharp.
He has a conference call with all his engineers in India and the US every week and travels to India three or four times a year. Communication does have to be specific and rechecked, but it is a good field.
