We were almost friends ;)
Extrapolating your point about coding, watch for “learn to code” and all these folks with coding skills to be purged as coding saturation reaches the same as print editors. AI and code libraries will become — and are — so complete that wheelmakers are remaking wheels.
Learn to think, learn to problem solve, learn to recognize trends early, learn to overcome fear, learn how to learn quickly — these are the critical skills. Coding is transitory; nobody gonna need those skills in 10 years.
