RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Moderately Confused College Fund vs. KickStarter

Moderately Confused, February 5, 2013, KickStarter - RF CafeI like reading comic strips just for the fun of it. Many of the newer ones are too political or have nasty characters, but some do a pretty good job of addressing today's societal concerns in a humorously clever way without insulting the audience. Moderately Confused, by Jeff Stahler, is one of them. In this one from February 5, the son is asking his parents if they would prefer to invest in his Kickstarter project rather than in a college fund. In an age where less than half of college graduates are getting jobs in their chosen fields of study, and where payback on exorbitantly high college costs could take a lifetime, rethinking the direction Junior should take might be a worthwhile exercise. A lot of people end up much happier in life pursuing a dream/idea early on rather than starting out with four years of college then being at the mercy of the corporate world. Not everyone would succeed in a start-up venture while going to the School of Hard Knocks rather than to a university, but then most aren't succeeding after graduating nowadays, either. Our daughter Sally, a straight-A student in college, elected to get Associates' degrees in business and logistics, then start a horse riding school instead of pursuing Bachelor's degree. She has never regretted the decision.
