If you keep your ear to the ground in the tech industry, you'll hear tech moguls talk about hiring people who do not have a college degree—essentially, hiring based on merit rather than education. That's what I want for my kids.
There's just something about the items you carry with you every day... Taking them along adds some sentimental value that you may be able to pass on to your kids. I've never been the sentimental type, but I'm finding myself more and more so as I step deeper into fatherhood (read: only almost two years).
