Wireds Skills for the Future, Facebook und die Apokalypse

Schöne Story über Skills for the Future auf Wired, die ich auf der Reise nach Berlin im Flieger in der Print-Ausgabe vom Oktober gelesen habe: 7 Essential Skills That You Didn’t Learn In College (via Futurismic). Aus irgendeinem Grund muss ich immer totes Holz kaufen, wenn ich irgendwo hinfahre oder -fliege. Ist so ein Reflex.

Statistical Literacy: Making sense of today’s data-driven world
Post-State Diplomacy: Power and politics, sans government
Remix Culture: Samples, mashups, and mixes

Writing for New Forms: Self-expression in 140 characters
Waste Studies: Understanding end-to-end economics
Domestic Tech: How to use the world as your lab

Andere tolle Storys in der neuen Wired, die ich auf dem Rückflug gelesen habe, ich muss das ja jetzt nicht alles einzeln raushauen: Kevin Kelly and Steven Johnson on Where Ideas Come From, Inside ThinkGeek, Where Mythical Meat Can Make Millions, Sex!
