While I don't think that all of those things SHOULD become true over the next 10 years, sad to say, most probably will become true... 10 years after that (or less, maybe even less than 10 from now) even more of those "Core Skills" and "Job Opportunities" will be lost to Automation and Outsourcing.
Remember when you took your first entry level job, and you learned the ropes from the veterans at the time, and they laid the arcane-magic smack down on you for being a total n00b? It was painful, but you learned stuff, eventually becoming at least proficient if not a master much like the wise sages of old... It was all about Knowledge Transfer, keeping it from the unworthy who would undoubtedly corrupt and misuse it, and passing it on to those who have proven themselves worthy through trial by fire.
Now you look back and see the people doing those jobs now are not required to actually know anything because all of the knowledge has been distilled down to a few buttons to be clicked (Automation), or a phone call/email to make it someone elses problem (Outsourcing).
Between "The Cloud", India and China... the days of Knowledge and Knowledge Transfer are numbered. The days of Idiocracy are nigh! And we are all in part to blame 😉

Good times... Obviously I exaggerate, but I do believe we are slowly making "IT Heroes", as they've been dubbed, obsolete...
