This last Friday was the commencement ceremony for the graduating class of this and last quarter and the principle speaker there was Akhil Gupta, the Vice President of Johnson & Wales University. It was taken largely in part from this video, which really makes you think about the world we live in and the speed that it is advancing and changing. Today more than ever, outdated has become a word applied to technology one or two years old, the latest and greatest instantly losing half it’s value almost the instant you buy it. This video really portrays this well, and though this video is not what got me to Neumont, many of these realizations is what founded this school about 5 years ago and is what will drive the future of this school.
Many thanks to Arron Reed for posting this video, I’m re-posting it here for convenience.
