Multi-lingualism


MIT is to open a new College of Computing.
That's nice for them

Of note, however, is this bit from L. Rafael Reif, MIT President, as quoted in the press
The goal of the college is to "educate bilinguals of the future"
And, to be clear, bilinguals are people whose 'other interests' are -- among others -- biology, chemistry, politics, history, and linguistics who are skilled in the techniques of modern computing that can be applied to them
Who said IT guys are one-dimensional? No longer; they can be bilingual
And, by extension, so can the project managers of the world be something other than PM-nerds
We can learn other languages as well!

Better yet: we can be multi-dimensional in both knowledge and wisdom -- what a concept!

Never stop learning is probably the right take-away!



Buy them at any online book retailer!
