This according to Jim Caroll who runs his own innovation weblog:
In an article which apparently has been published nationwide, he said the follwing:
Carroll said his 13-year-old son is currently
trying to choose between taking
international business and technology or
science and engineering because â€œboth
he and I recognize that an arts degree
will not prepare him for the specialized
nature of future work.â€
I personally think that is a load of crap. Is he living under a rock?
I actually respected this guys views up until now. I wrote him a lengthy email explaining how I dissagree with his point of view and honestly thought he was wrong. I pointed out that design has been key to recent growth for companies like Apple, P&G Motorola and even Target.
I also urged him to take his son for a tour of an ID departmet at a local college or attend a regional IDSA conference.
Stuff like this just gets my blood boiling.
I urge you all to do contact him as well.
