Shocking but ...

Pink says that most technologically based industries are telling engineering schools the same thing. "They are saying, 'Don't give us technicians, people who only do routine work; we can send that to India. We need people who can think across disciplines.'"

Came across this while reading an article on Beyond Technology that outlines a lot of good points supporting usage of one's right brain.
