Why We Need IT Workers

I received lots of sharp, thoughtful, and sometimes funny feedback to my last blog entry, Seeding IT's Future. Some readers applauded, some snorted, and some wanted to know what I was smoking and whether they could have some, too. In between, some interesting questions were raised, and points posited, that I'd like to address, along with what I think are some erroneous assumptions about where my blog was coming from.
