If you think your career is finished at 30 you either don't have the technical savvy to succeed or need to get a little self confidence

I'm a 29 year old non-OS programmer who is learning Linux device drivers. My boss didn't ask me to learn it -- I told him I had to in order to continue doing my job. Get some textbooks, create a test/development environment you can use where you won't break anything, and go buckwild.

The future is finally here! Now we're going to have a government-backed currency with a central bank that can control interest rates! Anyone can exchange it at will! Of course, the institutions that monitor these transactions are going to have to follow a set of regulations, and probably have some sort of government-backed insurance for deposits. But it'll be digital! Wave of the future!
