Re: grad school: My question remains, what jobs will be available? We're all familiar with automation taking away blue collar jobs. But computerization threatens white collar jobs. Most of the jobs created in finance during the boom were a mirage. Many of the jobs in computers were really "helper" positions, and as more businesses become self-sufficient, with even executives capable of plugging in the machine and downloading software updates, those jobs become unncessary. And so on.

We need teachers. We need nurses. We probably need primary care doctors, especially in "underserved" areas. We will need grunt health care workers for an aging population.

I tend to think Kent is optimistic.
