Knowledge, Learning, Community

This is an interesting characterization from Harold Jarche: "I would suggest that hard skills are really temporary skills. They come and go according to the economy and the state of technology. Today, we need very few people who know how to shoe a horse. Soft skills are permanent ones." Interestingly, the 'hard skills' are the skills being promoted all over the place these days: science and technology, engineering, math and computer science. Whatever you learn about them today will be mostly obsolete in 20 years.
