To quote Peter Drucker (Post-Capitalist Society, p. 24), saying: a skill "could not be explained in words, whether spoken or written. It could only be demonstrated." And, "the only way to learn a techne [skill, in Greek] was through apprenticeship and experience."

Would you want a fresh graduate from med school to operate on you, or would you prefer for him to have at least successfully finished an internship ( a form of apprenticeship ) at a hospital first?

What we need is a Technical Center, ( ie:a teaching college/factory ) where we may obtain the experience needed.

What should this "Tech Center" look like ? Please share your vision of what this Center could be.
