I mean... ...how many kids do you know these days who want to be a joiner or an electrician? They pay a heckuva lot of money AND you can do homers. Just what the heck are we contributing to the world here? Huh? Do any of us here go home at the end of the day feeling good about what we've done? Or are we just part of a big working machine? I sometimes feel like I'm just a lil cog in a very ill oiled cranky old machine. I don't wanna look back when I've retired and think I've done nothing of worth! Well...of course what we all do is of worth to the companies we work for... ...but whats going to be left behind, huh? Should we be encouraging kids to go into computer-type jobs? As CA has found, the IT market is saturated with Comp Science graduates and self-taught IT people and there's just not enough work there. But...we are crying out for teachers, decent time-served tradesmen, bus & train drivers... This was really just a rant...but it would be interesting to hear what yous think.
