"epistemological importance wrt to future of the human race"

Bill Kerr:

My general view about programming is that it is hard to learn. I'm also quite keen to improve my skill because for me programming has a deep sense of epistemological importance wrt to future of the human race.

That's about right.

After watching a decade of ontologies and information management, my feeling is that it would also be useful for programmers to study epistemology.
