An wiki about Obsolete Skills has recently been started, inspired by Robert Scoble. The wiki is a list of skills that used to be useful, but aren’t that useful anymore. It’s an interesting list, worth checking out.

Part of the wiki, though, is a (much shorter) list of new skills, that weren’t necessary in the past, but are today. This is what catches my eye most. And the question that I want to ask is, do you think these new skills should be taught in school more?

Maybe not all should. But I do think that skills like maintaining online identity are getting more and more important, and the formal education system should do a better job of teaching these skills. What do you think?
