Anyway, we were talking about passions and careers, and whether you can make a living doing what you love. I asked the group of eleven year-olds what they loved to do (their talent) and where they saw themselves in fifteen years. Here are the answers:
- Tinker with electronics/Getting my phd at MIT in either computer science or engineering.
- Glowing/Living at home, mooching off of my parents (this person may be headed for a career in standup comedy).
- Running/Working in an ice cream store, trying to take the next step professionally.
- Playing soccer/In Graduate school.
This led to a discussion of robots taking jobs and at what point a person with enough artificial body parts officially becomes a cyborg.
Not quite what the "suggested questions" at the end of the book had in mind, but interesting nevertheless.
