Interesting. I read the article to say there was something wrong with the 
education system, not with the individuals or the IT industry. If the 
system has no value, then there is no concern. If the system has value, 
let's explore and discuss the cause of the bias.

Sam.

p.s. an editorial correction - I previously wrote "you're point" when I 
should have written "your point".
