Study STEM
Marc Andreeson, creator of the original Netscape web browser and current technology venture capitalist, was asked by USA Today what the next 30 years will look like for work and jobs. The former computer programmer doesn't mix words when giving his opinion..

"The spread of computers and the Internet will put jobs in two categories," Andreessen says. "People who tell computers what to do, and people who are told by computers what to do." - Marc Andreeson

Mr. Andreeson sees technology and programming skills as a great divider in the the future work force. "There's no such thing as median income; there's a curve, and it really matters what side of the curve you're on," he says. His thoughts on a vanishing middle-class are rather disturbing and we frankly hope this doesn't come to be, but he says one thing is essential for today's students - "study STEM". He gives his thoughts on the middle class, liberal arts degrees, entrepreneurship, and where the U.S. falls.

The good news is that there are wonderful tools and teaching materials available to today's students. We just have to get these tools into their hands and, with the right coaching and encouragement, they will thrive in the future workforce.
