Chass Class 1. C3PO... R2D2?!
I will tell my nephew about that "The Simpson´s 3-D Chessboard" that my buddie "screekdawg" told me about. You know, I agree that kids need somenthing for life. I really do.
Kids think that every good thing in life become obsolete in 6 months, even with service packs updated. Actually, time is not a big deal when a new release take place. When you listen to a teenager speaking about future the time lapse between now and future is about ... "- Nevermind, I´ll check e-mail inbox later!"
In my days, good things in life required very much of a future, a long time ago, in a galaxy far far away... and a princess! It just take forever.
I heard that companies and corporations are already preparing a increase of challenging tasks at work to be able to keep high motivated those young professionals about their jobs. What can I say...
I just got this feeling... I´m sure that corporate world will not destroy these young professionals, but when THEY become CEO´s. Then, that is going to hurt.
The first born and raise on-line generation. Can you imagine all the boards of companies around the globe, all those seniors that build the business, but unfortunately have no clue about e-mail? Now they do.
Now they do programming e-mail server to send e-mails to all executives at random hours of the day, schedule a blackberry to call each one from sales team at 5 o´clock in the morning with a voice recorded message, board videoconference call with a presentation all about that new strategy...
You will believe that you boss is at the office. Technology is bliss.
Imagine someone having lunch or dinner with a big client, close to deal, and after gave him some details about it, client give you a big smile and say to you "- Yeah, let´s check it out at bloomberg.com, right now!"... and boom!
I concern about it. I never saw it coming THAT fast, you know.
Anyway, I like the idea of teaching chess to children ´cos it will take a bit longer to become obsolete. Right, Chewie!
P.S.: Computing in Humanities, Arts, and Social Science (CHASS), I just googled that out! The funniest thing is I have misspelled "chess" on the title, actually.
