I have a grave concern with the state of the working world.
I have heard and read far too many stories about incompetent people wielding power in places where logical thinking should prevail.
Places like scientific institutions, high-tech corporations, engineering consultancies – the list goes on.
Aren’t these organisations the ones that will develop our future society?
The thing is that nerds – you know, we technical-minded people in these organisations – are letting this happen right under our noses.
Find the term nerd too harsh? Too bad. We need this wake up call.
In my humble opinion*, it is our obligation to develop ourselves into strong individual contributors and leadership contenders.
Otherwise, we cannot complain about the lesser skilled person successfully schmoozing their way ahead of us.
