Why was this tagged as funny? What most people miss (I used to be one of them) is that the pumping of 1.4 trillion dollars into the banking systems (essentially printing money) isn't permanent. The Fed can shrink, or grow money supplies, and can also adjust interest rates to heat up or cool down an economy. School me if you can, but the only thing we'll see as a result is more bubbles, not hyperinflation.

Hopefully the industry hasn't changed TOO much, but I can tell you from experience that you can definitely do that, but you'll need to start at the bottom first. You really need to have experience managing hundreds (more or less) machines before you can handle servers and other equipment. Learn your TCPIP. Become a guru in one OS, and it'll be easy for you to master other OS's. Finally have faith in yourself and if it's something you want to do, don't listen to naysayers. Just will it into being.
