The rapidly changing shape of production
A few weeks ago I wrote this: Cheaper and BETTER university education is getting closer
Now I chanced upon a brilliant article: Why Software Is Eating The World
Do read it. This bit stood out:
"Health care and education, in my view, are next up for fundamental software-based transformation."
BUT: "many people in the U.S. and around the world lack the education and skills required to participate in the great new companies coming out of the software revolution. Qualified software engineers, managers, marketers and salespeople in Silicon Valley can rack up dozens of high-paying, high-upside job offers any time they want, while national unemployment and underemployment is sky high."
