Quote from: calico on April 28, 2009, 11:49:45 amI'm especially interested in someday seeing true apprenticeships sponsored by the software companies and elimination of the need for 4 years of academic pursuits that only partially match what a person needs to be a wholesome helpful entity in the world. Most graphics related universities only barely touch each subject related to 3D enough to be somewhat familiar and then the students need to find companies who will take them on to learn in a sweatshop environment. This idea would eliminate much of the unnecessary BS and provide opportunities for both newbys and veterans alike, as well as benefits for all of the companies involved. In other words - what if someone is very talented and we leave her / him at the roadside only because she / he can't get the money to buy a package of software? Must this person enroll in a university just to half-ass learn a product that they can't afford to purchase? No winners and lots of people in debt the way we do it now.
