Which job of the future would you choose?

Did anyone see the recent BIS study on potential jobs today's school kids could have in 20 years time?

Some of them sound pretty interesting - avatar, memory augmentation surgeon, weather modification police (more info on 'job descriptions' here: http://fastfuture.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/FastFuture_Shapeofjobstocome_PR_V11.pdf [nofollow])

I think I'd give the vertical farming a go - I know the BBC reported recently on a vertical farming trial at a British zoo (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/8503498.stm [nofollow]) and it looks quite interesting.

What would you choose?

I'd like to be part of the team that builds a wall across deserts using the deserts own sand and the wind. This will stop desertification of land in Africa. This wasn't in your list but I read it in "wired" magazine and was fascinated.
