From the first post in this thread, all of you are talking about jobs lah, employment lah, competing with FT lah... shows that our mindset is still at that basic level.
I think what the Forum writer is trying to get at is: WHERE THE FARCK ARE OUR STEVE JOBS AND MARK ZUCKERBERG? We only have Sim so far and he is fast fading into the sunset.
We need more innovators and visionaries. We don't need more low end IT slaves, those can be gotten quite cheaply and easily from our neighbouring 3rd world countries.
What it takes to be the next Sim? ---- technical know how + creativity, entrepreneur spirit, drive, willingness to slog it out instead of just looking for quick buck, etc
Look around us, or in every batch of graduates from uni or polys every year, do we see many who posses these qualities?!
We do see many becoming GIC / MNCs employees, or bank RMs, real estate agents...
