It’s official. I’m not inspired by school anymore. I fell asleep in my Oracle class while the teacher taught what a “primary key” was. I sit in the class in awe of the people who surround me. I’ll be working with these people someday. Maybe I’m a geek elitist, but I truly think that people who go into IT so they can make good money will be sorely let down. Do they really think they can stumble through an enterprise level system rollout with a few IS classes and a book?

I guess I can look at it in another light: I’ll have lots of people to manage when I graduate. What pains me most is that the teachers are teaching these kids that you should create applications using Access. Sure Access works well for small office situations, but do they expect to run companies off of this? Maybe I’m living in a dream world.
