Why this blog?

The internet is abounded with blogs started by PROGRAMMERS which sometimes provide interesting and/or useful information. Contents of any respective blog are dictated by the affinity of the author towards a particular language, technology or design patterns. I received a forwarded email a couple of days ago which read that having a technical/programming blog looks good on your resume, which definitely is good enough extrinsic motivation for people struggling for a job in these challenging times, to start a new blog.
I am also getting polarized towards more and more specific sub-sections of Computer Science and hence I wanted to start my own blog. However, this name "Typist vs Programmer" unfortunately is not my brain child. Nevertheless, It is an interesting story which gave me this idea and ofcourse name.
