Did you write the first draft of this article in crayon? The only point made here that even approaches a fundamental understanding with the current reality of actual IT experience is the fact that 75% of the guys are approaching 40 years of age and haven’t the slightest bit of motivation to learn new things.
I find the idea that as you approach 40 you lose motivation to learn new things to be boggling. My big problem at the moment is my motivation to learn new things is stronger than ever but the time I have to sit and focus on such things is pretty minimal.
I head back to the UK tomorrow morning and of the books I brought here to read I’ve managed to complete about 0.25% (if I’m feeling generous).
