Hi Alan,

My understanding is that the decline extends to Australia and New Zealand.
I suspect Japan too but I have nothing to back that up.  You are quite
correct in saying that it affects all of the tech subjects.  Kids entering
school are just looking for the "soft" subjects.

You are also correct in that it does not affect India, China, Korea, etc.
Losing almost all of our high tech manufacturing to Asia should have sounded
a warning that we needed to pay more attention to the future and less to the
profits of the last quarter but ...

Perhaps as scary if not more so is the loss of women in the tech fields -
this week's InfoWorld (Jan 29th) ran a couple of stories on the topic - the
headline of one being "Why Are Women Exiting IT?".  The other one
interestingly discusses initiatives by IBM and Cisco to attract women into
the field.

A good point about all the science subjects, Jon, and 
presumably the other tech subjects too.

But I'll "bet donuts to dollars" that the tendency is NOT 
true outside of the United States and maybe Europe. .....
