Why Not To Be A Programmer

Dori Smith has started a pretty interesting conversation about why not to go into programming. It's something I've been thinking about myself lately, especially with a lot of developers learning Java from birth. It's worth a look through; both Dori and the person taking counterpoint, Jim Roepcke, both have good points: to wit, programming specifically is kind of a dead-end, while developing beyond programming is going to get difficult as the major programming languages start to get more and more mainstream (Java, PHP, etc.) It's an interesting, if short, read.
