Work Experience Maxi-Me

I had a young kid (can I say that at 32?) come and sit with me for a couple of hours this morning. He’s doing work experience at the hospital and the guys in IT had run out things for him to do so they fobbed him off on to me.

I am instantly suspicious of any 16 year old who is (a) taller than me and (b) has more facial hair. My suspicions were well founded. I sat him down with a copy of Dreamweaver and a brief intro. Instantly his fingers started flying, the mouse was whirling and hard drive purring. Two hours later he had a web page hosted on the net.

I want to keep my job so I sent him back to the boys and told him that there was no future in the Internet, go concentrate on hardware.
