Now that I am one, I'm sure I do the same to others. 7 years ago I asked the same questions and got no good reply so I wasted 2 years in ASP only to find out .net was going to force my last two years into oblivion. So Flash actionscript seems like a good way to go at least flash will be around and strong for a few years then AS3 and now I have to learn it all over again.
Good thing I also learned PHP while I was getting my butt kicked by ever-changing industry standards.
So all that said, I have to agree with your article but it would be nice for these noobies to get a little clearer direction like....
Don't think learning programming is like learning anything else, the learn never stops, so get used to it...
and also dont expect people to beat down your door and pay you crazy money unless you are amazing,
'there is always room at the top'
but no room anywhere for mediocre programmers.
