I want to apologize to those who might suggest that I am whining. I was
really just thinking out loud to the list and got a lot of great responses.
Thanks to all who responded on and off the list. I do go to conferences,
read the latest publications, use the latest technologies, but sometimes it
just doesn't seem like enough. Could I suggest that we are all just
exploring the same things again and again? Is it in our job descriptions to
be theorists and visionaries? Or are we just too busy getting the next
manual, web page, or help screen done? My next question is: for those of you
who are continuing your education beyond the Bachelor's program in
communications, would you suggest it as an answer to a need for challenge?
