I did go through it but in about 5 sittings (short attention span) and watched Charlie Rose first to get an idea.
For good parts of the article, it was a trip down memory lane.
the part about HTML (and CSS) and emphasis that they are NOT programming
These were my thoughts also. html is markup only and does not qualify as a language but I will not get into an argument about it.
As to the point made above:
And then if not to yourself look at your children or grandchildren with you've read in mind
I have neither but can speculate. Provided they get into that line of work: Wow are they screwed (substitute 4 letter word, not puck) if they choose wrong. Not everyone will be a TMitTB or CTO or a 10K or Larry Page or Mark Zuckerberg.
Try opening the article then scrolling to the bottom.
