High-tech providers and users

Many, many moons ago, some ten or fifteen years ago, there was a thread discussing who the big beneficiaries of high-tech would be, the providers or the users. As high tech becomes commoditized the users gain the advantage. Two decades ago I could charge for my database work up to $150 an hour. Ten years ago I had competition from China willing to work for $5 an hour. Our customers were the winners and we the losers.
