» 9 Essential Skills Kids Should Learn

Kids in today’s school system are not being prepared well for tomorrow’s world. As someone who went from the corporate world and then the government world to the ever-changing online world, I know how the world of yesterday is rapidly becoming irrelevant. I was trained in the newspaper industry, where we all believed we would be relevant forever — and I now believe will go the way of the horse and buggy. Unfortunately, I was educated in a school system that believed the world in which it existed would remain essentially the same, with minor changes in fashion.

We were trained with a skill set that was based on what jobs were most in demand in the 1980s, not what might happen in the 2000s. And that kinda makes sense, given that no one could really know what life would be like 20 years from now. We had no idea what the world had in store for us. And here’s the thing: we still don’t. How then to prepare our kids for a world that is unpredictable, unknown?

1. 2. 3. The Second Law of Optimization. By now everybody and their screensaver have heard the Optimization Mantra: Don’t Do It!

The Second Law of Optimization

This is commonly wrapped in a three-rule package (I suspect there is a word for that.) The first two of which are copies of the mantra, and the third adds the wise word “Yet” to the one-and-only true rule and addresses it to the “expert.” I suspect originally the middle “rule” didn’t exist and it was later added for effect, and perhaps to get the total to the magic-number of three. I can almost imagine Knuth after figuring out a single-character bug in a bunch of code, with coffee mugs and burger wraps (or whatever it was that was popular in the ’60s) scattered around the desk… eyes red-shot, sleepless and edgy, declaring “Premature optimization is the root of all evil.” (But in my mind he uses more graphic synonyms for ‘evil’.)

Et un méga merci à Mashimaro, je vais passer commande prochainement. Pour la petite histoire, nous nous sommes absentés quelques jours et nous étions un peu angoissés : dans quel état allions-nous récupérer notre appartement. Je me voyais déjà envahi comme dans Starship Troopers ... ou Arachnophobie, enfin les films où plein de bestioles rampantes et volantes rentrent de partout et vous font dresser les cheveux sur la tête ! L'inquiétude était d'autant plus grande que la veille du départ elles ont remis ça. Mais là, j'avais repéré qu'elles sortaient à partir de 22h00. Donc si cela vous arrive, repérez l'heure d'arrivée, ça aide.

Encore merci à tous, et une ovation toute particulière pour Mashimaro !!!! Les sorciers de Waverly Place-1x08-attention chien dragon 1/3.
