John's point above is probably one of the most important aspects of TW.
Tools can be easily learned, especially after you have X number under your
belt. But the ability to dance, quickly or slowly, to any tune and the
ability to prove you can do it (resume) to a potential employer can be much
more important than the technologies you know. It's worked for John, myself,
and many other TWs on this list for years.
Hmm, maybe we need certification on learning <G>.
