Pay Based on Programming Language

I just read a post by Benjamin Podgursky on the relationship between programming language and income. Very interesting. PHP was near the bottom of the list (least paid). That was disappointing. I am trying to learn PHP this upcoming semester. Then again, the rationale behind the low salaries was that PHP is easy to learn. I will be the judge of that. But I am optomistic.

Near the top of the list was Java. Yeah. I am brushing up on my Java right now. My manager told me I should probably be learning J2EE better in the next year or two. I concur. Something surprising at the top of the list was ActionScript. I thought Flash was on the way out. Perhaps its demise was overstated.
