Reply to "We lost almost a full percentage in IT workforce count over 9 year period"

But the info IS there. The option is there, in book stores, libraries and User's Groups! ...I started in IT because, as a writer, the DOS box I used (Remember Word Star?) got upgraded to Win 3.1--I was in the field, so I ended up administering my unit. This meant a lot of reading on my own.

Also; as my way of giving back, I established a network of nerds in the Detroit area, and when ever a business upgraded their PCs I'd pile them into my brother's van. The idea was to take the hardware, cannibalize it to get as many working PCs as I could, Load a copy of LINUX on them and drive around Detroit"”you see a kid, you give him a computer. You'd be surprised how many kids took to those things"”how many stuck with it, and how many went on the become small-business owners.

But that's me, making a difference, one knucklehead at a time.
