Building apps is the new gold rush

Rails-god and 37Signals guru, David Heinemeier Hansson, tweeted:

(adjusted for chronological order and aesthetics)

Building apps is the new gold rush. Non-techie friends are constantly asking me how to get in on the action. I would short this market. It's like looking at the music billboards and asking anyone who knows how to play a guitar if they can help making one of those hits. (also, it's always iPhone apps they want to build. Never hear anyone talk about Android or even web)

True and it also creates giant egos for some non-technical founders. Stay grounded people. Appreciate people and talent for who they are and not just what they can do for you.
