Poll Result: If I could go back in time, would I choose again IT as a profession?

I suspect that most of the voters are from Asian countries, where IT still offers a lot of opportunities. My perception is that in "the West" (Europe, USA) IT has lost most of its appeal, after the immense wave of offsourcing which has taken place in the last 10 years.... almost impossible to join a large development project.

For me, IT was a VERY exciting field in the late 1990.... I have been on really large projects and one had the sensation of changing the world... most of my colleagues were really bright professionals, and they have been very successful in professional life.

Now one has really to struggle to find a challenging project, and the market is flooded with unqualified demotivated resources.
