Re: <nettime> Douglas Belkin, Caroline Porter: Corporate Cash Alters University Curricula (WSJ)


Wonder how long that specific skill set will last before those who invested their time and lives in it are chucked out in the trash. Meanwhile their Ivy League managers with less specialization will continue to adapt and to reign. These are the new cyberserfs. Learning security at a University wd seem ludicrous if it weren't a waste of people's lives. Database programmers will not be the engineers of the future but the machinists and without unions.
