Bill Gates & Brittney Spears
At home I've been reading The World is Flat (which I can't recommend enough). Anyway, he's writing about how America is losing it's competitive advantage in the world (this isn't the whole book, but an important piece) and he writes this... In China today, Bill Gates is Brittney Spears. In America, Brittney Spears is Brittney Spears and THAT is our problem." So Jennifer and I have been having conversations about how to help our kids fall in love with science and engineering. We don't have any solid answers yet.
