Um… I didn't hear anyone complaining. Rob was offering some encouragement. To paraphrase: Just because computers and GIS make analyzing large amounts of information easier doesn't meant the job of cartographer is going away. In fact, the proper application of all that data makes cartographers more important, although the nature of the role has certainly changed.
Anyway, I don't have anything to add to discussions of the industry, as I'm nothing close to a pro, but good luck in your hunt!
