In reality this concept is not new. It has been happening in the "tech" industry for the last 50+ years. The harsh reality of life is that the half life of your technical education is 5 years. Now for those of you who will argue that work experience counts, I have found that, at best it is 10% for the first 3 years then decays by about 2% for every year after that until you hit 1%. Now the bad news is that 75% of the tech folks don't realize this until about the 10 year point in their career. By then it is tough to go back to school in their original career path. So where do they go? Management, tech support, quality assurance, or more often than not that cubicle in the corner where they get dragged out only to attend meetings with their cronies who took the management path. So all I can say for all of you hot shit I am going to change the world young techies...... If you play your cards right you too will end up with your own cubicle in the corner eventually as well.
