5 Reasons CPATH Must Succeed

Peter Huber, writing in the latest edition of Forbes, outlines five investment themes that (my interpretation) will absolutely require more, not fewer, workers with broad and deep understanding of the tools that enable the technology development. Investors don't necessarily care where those workers come from, but we should. Transforming the menu we place in the educational cafeteria is our challenge and must be our mission.

"...Prosperity and profit still depend, above all, on human ingenuity... No serious student of science technology can be anything but bullish about the long-term prospects for profit and growth in the ingenuity-driven economy." See the complete (1 page) article.

Join us on Friday, February 8th!

This Friday, February 8, we will meet as usual in room 08 (right next to my office), to clarify the roles of speakers, panelists and group facilitators, with the result a written schematic for how it will all flow together.

See the previous post for the CPATH “boxes” diagram with a few revisions. Please take a look and see if it matches what we talked about last Friday.

For the latest update on Symposium Planning, see the minutes in the link to the right under Meeting Notes for Advisory Board Meeting 2.1.08.
