The *real* problem however is that young people hardly see any benefit in 
becoming a develoiper. With universities that effectively are microsoft gold 
resellers, with twitter, Facebook, Apple telling them that it still all is 
AOL' 95, why should they care?

 Though this seems to be a very specific article, it is still valid, and
the most interesting is actually the replies its having.
