@wolf: My father is a computer programmer, and I am a drummer. I have no formal education or experience in the computer industry - but, I am currently working as a system administrator. I am only now going back to school to get a network degree, so I can have something in writing. My story sounds similar to this "computer expert at my office" guy, in some aspects, but for me the question is not "can I do the job?" but "can I get payed to do the job?"
There's a level of facility that everyone needs to accomplish, and from there
it's a matter of deciding for yourself how important ultra-facility is to your
expression. ... I found, like Joseph Campbell said, if you just follow whatever
gives you a little joy or excitement or awe, then you're on the right track.
