comment Any advice from self-taught programmers on competing with more conventional types?
The main advantage a computer science degree provides is exposure to a large number of areas. I did a double major, so I find that there are many areas in which I lack even basic knowledge compared to those who only majored in comp sci. Being self taught, I imagine you would experience this to a much greater degree and so it might seem intimidating. Understand that they will have this advantage (unless you do a lot of self-study), but there is no reason why you can't match or exceed them if you focus your efforts on a particular area.

@Lasse: I do intend to write my own language some day. I don't know if I'll ever actually end up doing it, but that is the reason why I asked this question. I am interested in how C# could have been done better

You can cast to object in a lot of languages. Main problem is that many languages separate primitives and objects

I believe that blogging will make you a better programmer as it forces you bring different ideas that you have into a coherent form
