I read a great editorial in this month’s issue of WIRED, where Clive Thompson speculates on the potential for Cuba to become the next big tech resourcing center.
“Like the ’80s Irish, Cubans are eerily well educated, particularly for such an impoverished people. Education is one thing Castro has done right: 99.8 percent of adults are literate, and nearly a third have graduated from high school, many with the sort of vocational training in mechanics and farming the US foolishly let slip a generation ago. Based on UN statistics, one out of five young adults in Cuba graduates college.”
I thought the piece was really fantastic, and I was very happy to find it online so I could share it with you. You can read it in its entirety here.
