Swedish IT Educations No Longer In Demand

According to an article in the danish ComputerWorld the number of IT students in Sweden has fallen from 22.000 in year 2000 to less than 5.000 this year... The swedish P1 radio station just reported that during the same time period the number of patent applications are down 27%. Another measure of the IT/Telecom crash is that Ericsson that used to be the biggest private employer in Sweden with 45.000 employees is reduced to 23.000 or so today.
