Freaky Future

Freaky Future: Fragile – Handle with care.

Most of it seems like a horrifying sci-fi novel or movie, the only difference is – it is not fiction. I am talking about a presentation by Karl Fitch, namely ‘Did you know?’ Materials are arranged in such a gluey manner that keeps you at the edge of your seat.

To me it was like confession of a completely fact freak American, but I am sure you’ll enjoy and obviously be impressed by this excellent presentation.

Being an engineer by profession and strong supporter of language unification, I liked most of the freak fact told about technology and growing influence of English world-wide.

However the best part of presentation where he talks about ‘fast growth of technical information.’ He says, “… for a student, starting four year technical degree, half of what they learn in first year will be outdated by their third year of study …” This may, probably, be true for US, but what about people who still study technologies that had been outdated half a century ago? And worse, what if it is the case of premiere institutes of a country?

Never mind! They’ll get a job anyway.
