I remember when Photoshop first started becoming popular. Everybody in the
photo business freaked out. What took you a day in a darkroom could be
accomplished in a fraction of the time on your PC. Why would anybody hire a
professional? Uncle John will shoot every picture and we'll digi-fix-it and
print it! Naaah. Truth is that nothing can replace experience, skill and
talent... just like a jar of sea monkies won't replace 2000 gallon aquarium.

Would they anyways? They would probably hire some college kid for a little
above minimum wage. The way I see it, the two markets just don't cross.
