Students eventually get jobs

..and when they do they bring stuff with them. My earlier post that equates the Macintosh of the 1980's to Google today is further reinforced by this article that shows how the students of today rely on the Web 2.0 culture in their course work. These are tools and practices they'll expect (or encourage) when they enter the workforce--just as some students were able to bring Macintosh with them out of the academic environment into the workplace in the 1990's.

This is part of the conflict we experience today at a company like ours. Where new blood is clashing with the dinosaur systems of yesterday.
