Comment: They should be worried. (Score 2) 553

It's a big problem in my company. The number of people in my department that can successfully troubleshoot an issue to resolution, understand the root cause, and prevent it from happening again is shrinking. They do have skills, but not true understanding of how/why things work or don't work. It's tremendously frustrating, and it's a trend that's not going away. I don't believe it's just an issue with the education system though. I can't remember the last time I was in a meeting or review where upper management tries some kind of "outside-the-box" techniques.

If entropy is increasing, where is it coming from?
