Strong education about technology remains woefully behind. Here's a stark example:
To graduate with a Letters, Arts, and Sciences degree from the UC system (or most colleges), you are required to takes courses in physical and life sciences. You are required to study language, society, history, culture, and the arts.
But you are not required to study technology-- not a single course is required.
So each year a huge population of college students still graduate with barely a clue about the technology concepts and languages that will powerfully shape their work, their play, and their lives.
Seems like a relatively easy thing to fix.
