The path from enabler to earner can be hard to discern.
That path exists - for a coder just as much as for an author.
Oh, I've done my share of enabling. I'm a little conflicted when I think of the multi-millions that have been earned using tools I've created. rocknbil says "it is my place", but can't I upgrade my place?
You *can* be successful as a coder. I think FarmVille is a decent example. Etsy. Kijiji. PlentyOfFish. Scrabulous. Google. Ravelry. Twitter. The list is huge. These aren't content producers, these are content enablers - coders. Coders who created something remarkable, useful, fun, practical, popular.
Social media is your playground. There are lots of people willing to create content, if you give them an engaging tool to do it.
build the next killer app!
