The "coolness" leaving Computer Science for EcoStuff? « Scobleizer

 Fascinating observation from Scoble while at SXSW this week.  VC’s are moving on from technology to environmentalism.

He says that the attention of the world’s biggest venture capitalists has left the computer world and moved to the world of environmentalism. Says that the attention there was on material scientists and other scientists who are coming up with ways to save energy, reduce carbon dioxide emissions, etc.

I write this because if the world’s richest people are going to start pouring their resources somewhere other than computer science, that’s important to know, especially if you’re someone trying to decide on a career.

I find this particularly fascinating because all the future2 stuff I have read suggested that the next step beyond information technology, would be biotechnology. Just goes to show that sometimes events can overtake rational prediction.

Time will tell.
