iN2015

Read iN2015. ICT masterplan for the next 10 years. It's cool and interesting. It's something we can all look forward to. 80,000 more ICT jobs in the next 10 years? We'll see huh? Maybe by then, I wouldn't be in this line as technology frees up more time for people to do "other things".

Technology, is good, is cool and it helps, only if you know how to. I'm afraid the people making the decisions are like dinosaurs, intimidated by technology. The jobs we're doing are an underated, understated, unglamourous, underpaid job. Everyone realises its importance, but no one pays enough attention. Are they really able to embrace technology affecting the way we live, work, play and learn in the next 10 years, considering that, they cannot even accept something as simple as IMs? Or the fact they want to restrict internet access (in this broadband era)? Where I work, they can't even use the email system to communicate properly! LOL. I would really love to see the day.

Had a session with the planners today and learnt quite a fair bit about city planning and the principles behind it. It's indeed like, SIMS City. The only difference is that, it feels so real.
