[Discuss] learn or teach programs

<rant or not>
I have an issue with trying to get people to program or develop software.
You don't see lawyers saying we need more lawyers. You don't see many
professions trying to actively recruit people.

People who want to program gravitate toward it. They don't need help.
Conversely, people who have neither interest nor aptitude won't do it no
matter what.

Personally, and maybe a little selfishly, our profession could use fewer
engineers who could have just as easily been MBAs to make room for hackers
who could change the world.
