Marc Andreessen’s tough love career advice

From a 2012 interview. According to Andreessen:

  • The spread of computers and the Internet will put jobs in two categories. People who tell computers what to do, and people who are told by computers what to do.
  • There’s no such thing as median income; there’s a curve, and it really matters what side of the curve you’re on. There’s no such thing as the middle class. It’s absolutely vanishing.
  • We’re in a bubble for people with a non-Ivy League, non-technical education. If you have a degree in English from a tier B state school, you’re not prepared.
  • Big companies are not going to take care of you. You can’t let history happen to you.
