Monday Morning Quote
More wise words from James Gleick's Faster:
And the effect of all that rapid technological change? We get dizzy. We feel the instability of our own place in society. Soon, says the science journalist James Burke,
the rate of change will be so high that for humans to be qualified in a single discipline - defining what they are and what they do throughout their life - will be as outdated as quill and parchment. Knowledge will be changing too fast for that. We will need to reskill ourselves constantly every decade just to keep a job.
And that was ten years ago. Perhaps the quarter-life frustration that comes for so many near my age has to do with the speeding up of technology and how it relates to employability. Our current educational systems are not set up to handle such preparation.
