some q's for you and some ideas...
Nav has some great points. I'd also suggest considering the following questions and ideas:
Which magazine gets you goin'/thinkin' on all cylinders?:
Popular Science (http://www.popsci.com) (smattering and surface level plus some description of technology of all sorts)
The New Atlantis (http://www.thenewatlantis.com) (academic take on technology and society, technology/engineering/science & public policy)
International Design (http://www.idonline.com) (journal dedicated to the creative arts, industrial design, and innovation - very international too)
Do you want to read the news and comment on it (reviewer, learned critic)? Do you feel most naturally gifted in writing the news for others to enjoy and be informed with (tech-journalist)? Or do you want to do stuff that is news worth reporting, the one in the trenches doing the creating, discovering, etc. (engineer, scientist)? Or do you want to do a LOT of statistical mathematics while using tech-insights to provide data that would bolster great technology solutions for public policy (tech-economist)?
Any personal projects you're personally proud? Any that make you a standout amongst your peers? Any projects you really want to tackle? Do you enjoy being part of a team or are you genuinely, truly most at ease and vibrant when you're on your own doing a project?
When I was in high school, I wrote the heads of a few companies telling them (briefly/concisely) of my talents, interests, and a couple trends I picked up on by myself and asked their asked them for some career advice. They did respond (one even sent a nice book) and it was helpful to read their response.
I'm currently doing systems engineering which could lead into a position title of "technologist" or "technology developer" after some experience. One option for you would be do to 'general engineering'/'systems engineering'/'engineering management'...or things that are strongly related.
And..honestly, do stuff that is fun to do even when they going gets tough (due to critics, bosses, industry slump, etc.). Every industry has a cycle - but if you enjoy the process (the "during") and not just achievements (the "goals/end"), then I think you'll feel great about what you do and what you contribute to no matter what the health of the industry is. It takes a lot of different people to make the world go 'round...and don't guilt yourself if your not more than 1 at the same time ;-P
It's a great thing you're asking these questions!
Best wishes to you,
