Computer literacy is your responsibility

There was a thought-provoking article in the recent eweek

"Computer Literacy isn't just kid stuff"

The article reminds me of some of the "…take responsibility for your information environment…" statements I've said of late.

Comments:

"That's no excuse …for failing to come to grips with the need for senior managers to get a clue about the century in which they live."

"A manager who is not yet 60 years old may have been imprinted in his or her 20s with the idea that databases are tools for storage, not for analysis. While your competitors are data mining with tools like SPSS' Clementine, your company may think that it's keeping managers informed by giving them data dashboards that require looking for patterns instead of letting algorithms spot them sooner. "

Wow.
