Reality check

Dennis Forbes posted a good article on the topic of programmer compensation the other day. It's an interesting counter-balance out the latest incarnation of the "programmers are unique and special people" meme, which is that programmers really aren't all that interested in money.

Am I the only one who's getting sick of this meme? I mean, do you see this sort of thing in other professions too, or is it just in the computer industry? Do doctors and lawyers sit around talking about how they're fundamentally different from people who do other types of work? It's kind of hard to imagine that.
