Facing Change

The Post Graduate
If you've seen the movie "The Graduate" my arcane reference might make sense. Or not. I was thinking about how technological change affects how we make a living. For starters the way we do our jobs certainly has changed. More striking to me is the fact that some jobs today simply didn't exist "in my day" as a young university student. Conversely, jobs that were fairly promising back then are becoming obsolete today. One example: mass media. Are radio announcers in demand anymore with the advent of internet and downloading music? I don't see video stores much anymore...So as I wondered what the "big thing" is for the current generation, I remembered the line from a long ago movie....
