Four fingers back at me

So here's a change in tack since my ancecdote on "PhD jobs" (aka good technical jobs in Singapore) now turns up within the top ten results for [phd jobs singapore].

Quite simply, it is my sincere belief that there needs to be more companies where there is excellent engineer culture (*). This creates a cycle where the brightest and best will gravitate towards these areas of study. Merely having one or two successful company is not enough, you want a garden of them. Creative technology anyone?

As it turns out, Singapore is starting to have some traction as a start up hub in Southeast Asia. So entrepreneurs - make your millions and billions, and play your part in making software engineering (and technical jobs) a sexy career choice in Singapore!

p.s., I'm very contented in Google; but feel free to pitch to me if you want my opinion on getting stuff done.

(*) You want to foster a culture where innovating is the norm, and the Silicon Valley model has worked well so I am limited by this mindset, but it is certainly true that there are other ways to achieve this.
