They better not stir them up
Learn principles and techniques. A little theory. Use programming languages to help you learn it but do not obsess over the language. All programming languages suck, just to a greater or lesser extent and some in more interesting ways than others. But basic principles never change.
CO also is dreadful. I am glad I am not coding much anymore.
If I get paid for it.
2nd semester when we had to learn 3 languages in 3 months + data typing. I will never forget when the 'aha' light clicked on with Lisp. ANd since then I have never been afraid of picking up new technology in an extremely short time frame. Which has kept me employed over the years.
Why should we encourage people to code? Is it always a good thing to do so?
Go to the Bureau of Labor Statistics and look at the criteria for the U6 unemployment rate. I think it will cover your criteria. he rate most reported in the news is the U3 and is easier to understand and considered a harder number as it is difficult to count people who have stopped looking or do not show up at job centers as they are working part-time or under-employed.
"They should become specialists in archival services."
They are. And good luck reading your book in 10 or so years when your favorite electronic publishing house shutdown, gets bought out, or just stops offering the format your electronic book is written in.
And virtual libraries require servers, networking, storage arrays, other ancillary gear, and an army of staff to maintain them. Virtual libraries also require readers and a network connection. And electricity. You can have a real library even without electricity.
And if he had known his history he would have seen the stupidity of his ways. The history of financial crashes of the 1800's, before financial regulation was wide spread or even conceived of in some cases, is compelling. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_banking_crises
Real world data refutes the market deregulation.
Laptops, hand held devised, tablets, space exploration verticals, drones, and remote sensing equipment are probably only a few examples.
That depends. If you have to cram a long term storage device into a small package then SSDs may win that battle regardless of the price difference. If you need virtualy 'instant on' storage or quick booting capabilities then SSDs win. If you need a very light weight solution the SSDs win. Price is but one factor.
That is the risk of an unregulated market. Unregulated markets can be very dysfunctional. See Microsoft as an example of a monopoly developing when there are no regulation of software licensing to hardware manufacturers.
"Your regulations (especially limited medallions) have caused more waste than these "dirty tactics" do"
can you back that up with any stats?
seriously, when can they really learn
