The Guardian has one of the strangest pieces I've read in a long time. It argues (against all logic) that learning to code is a highly valuable skill, and that if everyone learned how to code, we'd be free from the 'tyranny of the machines'.
These guys are living in a Matrix fantasy, I think. If anything, economics shows us that exactly the opposite is true: coding is a skill that doesn't command much value anymore, because it's a relatively easy skill to pick up.
Oh yeah, and there really isn't any 'tyranny of the machines'.
