Trabalhadores da informação

Na BBC, com a data de hoje, Bill Gates assina um pequeno mas muito interessante artigo onde afirma:

One of the most important changes of the last 30 years is that digital technology has transformed almost everyone into an information worker.
In almost every job now, people use software and work with information to enable their organisation to operate more effectively.
That's true for everyone from the retail store worker who uses a handheld scanner to track inventory to the chief executive who uses business intelligence software to analyse critical market trends.
So if you look at how progress is made and where competitive advantage is created, there's no doubt that the ability to use software tools effectively is critical to succeeding in today's global knowledge economy.
(...) Today and in the future, many of the jobs with the greatest impact will be related to software, whether it is developing software working for a company like Microsoft or helping other organisations use information technology tools to be successful.
(...) Software innovation, like almost every other kind of innovation, requires the ability to collaborate and share ideas with other people (...)
I also place a high value on having a passion for ongoing learning. (...) Having that kind of curiosity about the world helps anyone succeed, no matter what kind of work they decide to pursue.
