In these challenging times, are the IT & technology sectors in Ireland heading the right direction? Do we have enough supports and gain opportunities for commercialisation for our ever innovative ideas and academic R & D projects? What do we need to go one better ? in this fast moving commercial world ?

It is my opinion that the economic market place is moving quickly away from a materials based economy to an information based. Information in this context refers to data, communication, and entertainment. I am not familiar with the Irish system but the American system is failing miserably to educate the workforce to match the demand. Clearly with the sales of smartphones and tablets combined with the ubiquitous use of SMS, GPS, and related location based services, the demand for these products is through the roof. 

These are challenging times but they are challenging because the nature of the products being demanded by the public are changing from less of a materials based economy to more of an information based. A natural conclusion of a populous focused on environmental concerns and biosphere preservation will naturally move away from rampant consumption. We are seeing this dramatic shift in consumer habits in many regions of the USA. The products that are being requested are not physical but those technology related devices and services. The Internet is now the town square for the majority of my friends, associates, and co-workers. The IT industry is the steel mill of the future.  Increasing capacity to meet this demand should be the first priority of every education institution and organization concerned with meeting this need.

Chester please I need to talk to you. Your silence does not mean that you can go away with the problem. Lalo mong pinapalala ang situasyon. Nagulat ako nung bigla mong sabihin na dinidiktahan kita at simula nun di ka nagtetext at di mo sagutin tawag ko at umuwi ako para maluta ang problema pero hinarap mo sina Dasha at auntie.Simula noon nakita ko sa vmobile na ginamit mo ang pera para lang matawagan mo ang babae mo at kahit hating gabi daw tinatawagan mo at wag mong ikaila kasi sinabi ko sa iyo kahit pa suhulan mo si Faith at mama mo sasabihin pa rin sa akin. Tinanong lang kita about sa pera at listahan pero ikaw ang nagalit at sinuntok mo ang laptop at sinabi mo yun kina umagahan kaya di kita nirereplyan kasi galit ako sa ginawa mo pero nang gabing yun di mo na ako sinasagot. Nag promise ka na di mo ako iiwan at ikaw din ang gumawa ng problema kung sinira mo ako jan sa bahay mo isipin mo kung naka punta ka dito madadala mo sila pero inuna mo sarili mo at babae mo at ako pa ang ginawa mong masama. Kahit ganyan ang nangyari aantayin kita at yun ang promise ko kay daddy. Ingat and i love you.
