    Article excerpt on Google’s Eric Schmidt & J. Cohen on new book, “The New Digital Age” –
    http://mashable.com/2013/05/13/google-eric-schmidt-jared-cohen/

    “The speakers ended the evening on a bit of career advice, saying that the U.S. desperately needs engineers. So desperate, said Schmidt, that it doesn’t even matter if you’re even a good one or not. Become an engineer and you will never have trouble finding a job, he said.”

      Tell that to out of work engineers.
      Tell it engineers training their immigrant replacements.

        Yeah, agree w/ you Marlon, for me, 10+ years working in data centers for the largest telecoms. I’ve interviewed w/ Google 3 times over the last 5 years for an SA/SRE position & I couldn’t understand what the Google interviewer was saying because he couldn’t speak English very well. High turnover w/ Google recruiters too. Now I’m 50 (a ‘health risk’) w/ (seemingly) no future just looking to “stick it to those big, greedy corps that have betrayed us all”!

    Good discussion here about AGI research. Do we allow machines to run things? Do we grant robots “human” rights? Do we merge with the One machine?
