As I was reading Daniel Pink’s High Concept, High Touch, it seems to me that I chose a good school to attend as well as a good degree plan. Studying an art might have been looked down upon back then, but it’s very reassuring that it’s becoming a necessity. I feel like I’ve made a good choice and that I will be rewarded for all my hard work. I will surely devote a good amount of time and effort into doing my very best here at St. Edwards.
It’s interesting to see the gradual progression from Agriculture to Industry to Information, and now: Conceptual. I had no idea that we were in a conceptual age. I did recognize a few things that Daniel was talking about, such as an immense increase in graphic designers, and the need for them. I was one of the first to take the “new” SAT test with the optional writing portion. Daniel did touch on that part in the excerpt, although I don’t know how old this information is.
We’re entering a new age, and it doesn’t feel like it. Maybe I’ve been in the Conceptual age since birth, or have gradually grown up in it. Who knows? I’ve never heard of this, and I’m interested in learning more about it. Time to check out Daniel Pink’s book: A Whole New Mind.
