Computers are for everyone. You have a growth market of some 50 million
workers in the US alone. Under what form of magic do you believe that
any of the basic allorgithms involved in program design is beyound ANY
normal adults grasp?
If what your saying is true, your in the wrong field because dependency of
such 'rare' guiniess is not enough fuel for an industry to make.
It's not guenius which is fuels the digital age, nor is guenus providing
pay scales. For that matter, gueniuses can't even guarantee good pay for
themselves, forgetting about the other some 50 million individual intellectual
giants needed for today.
IT industry, like any other profession, depends on skilled educated craftsmen,
with fidiciary responsibility. And Licensing these skilled worked is the single
fastest means to assuring them fair payment for their skills and oversite of
the most important criticle infrastructure in today world.
