A conversation with Shell: Why don’t today’s students want to be engineers?
It always looked to me the problem started much more earlier on a persons life. The stereotype that engineers are naturally gifted for maths is part of the problem. Added to the tendencies to disregard bad grades on STEM related subjects as "he/she is not good at maths, it's not that terrible". Simply put students end up believing STEM related skills are a natural talents and not to be developed capabilities. Which clearly will make students - which are not naturally gifted for this subjects or really level headed, disregards STEM careers.

Social media can amplify your voice but how come it doesn't happen very often?
Right. Current success stories were possible thanks to a group of people - who had already identified an objective, which choose social networks as their tool. For example the late events on Egypt. Seems to me we could find two different stages which responded to different objectives. First it was local organization through social networks. And later on it was the exposure of the situation to international public opinion. The orchestrators of these events had developed a strategy - independently of its formality.

Social media is an enabler. It enables people to communicate. The advantage being that is much more accessible than other communication technologies. Reducing the economic restrains on the communicators. But if you don't have a communication strategy you won't communicate much. The democratizing nature of Internet provides people with the means. But not with the ideas, know how or capabilities.

Is equality feasible and is it worth achieving? Subquestion: By your definitions, is equality synonymous with fairness?
Guess the definition of equality and equality of opportunities should be addressed on different debates. The first is perhaps field for philosophers. The second is an informed desition each state should make. Understanding that state, government and nation are not the same things. Personally I always preferred the term equivalent to equality. Mainly because I feel the first allowed us to provide value to society through our differences and not despite of them. Which would mean we are worth the same because of our differences. Otherwise - and this is an opinion, the term would hurt more than it healed. Since being different on any aspect would be simply wrong. Equality of opportunities is a discussion to be made by each state. Not by a particular government nor a particular nation within a state. Personally I believe the state should provide the same opportunities of education and health to all citizens. Which is not the same to limiting the amount of opportunities those wealthier can access. It means a state makes a desition wether it prefers to remain competitive or not. Wether it wants to extract up to the last drop of value and innovation from its citizens or only from those who by effort or natural disposition reach the top. Understanding that the first will imply heavy investments with low to medium levels of return. While the second one will incur on the exclusion of contributions from big sectors of the population simply because they didn't do things they way a particular sectors of the state's population though things should be done under a particular mindset consequence of a particular series of events during a particular time frame.
