What a strange comment.

I don't know where his career path will take him. He is a fair artist with a number of medium, and may go into the creative arts like his mother.

Or he might go IT like Dad. hard to say.
Hell, my first degree is Humanities, I just turned out to be that good at IT and I wanted a job. And I use it a lot, I produce a lot of written materials like whitepapers and technical solution documents. Being good at IT and the written word is a huge advantage. I haven logged into a server in 5 years, now I plan how they get there, how they will be used, and what their life cycle will be.

But where ever he goes or does, I suspect he will use a computer 8 to 12 hours a day to do it.

He was learning touch typing at 4 years old. Until he got good at it he was required to use a typing game to learn it. And yes, he has the hand reach to do it, both my wife and I have 12th reach on the piano, and he inherited it. Don't assume.

And I make him look words up in the dictionary if he spells it wrong or uses a homonym. Drives him crazy, but we are down to 1 or two per paragraph and it gets better every year.

Whom computers would destroy, they must first drive mad.
