Submission + - Which IT careers are hot and which are not?

necromante writes: I've been working on different IT positions through my career: Support, some networking, DBA, web development, project management, even working on the client side for a little while. However I don't feel like I am really an specialist on any of those subjects and I feel I need to focus on a particular field. So I decided to ask Slahdot for some feedback before taking my decision. Is there any IT career that I should consider more than the others? Which are the emerging fields? Any industry in particular? Which careers on IT are actually more in demand and which ones not? Or is a better path to focus on moving into management? By the way, I am writing from Canada. I do understand that this also depends everyones tastes, likes and dislikes. However I would like to have a better idea of which are the available options. I hope the results of this discussion can benefit other Slashdot readers. Thank you for your time!

Where are the calculations that go with a calculated risk?
