It's just a continuation of whats always happened.  Kids are always at the

At work we have 3-4 people who started their career in games programming as
13-14 year olds and left school to full-time developer jobs at 16.  Three
earned more money than their Dads working part-time studying for their
O-levels.  One chaps family thought he must be dealing drugs when cheques
for a few hundred started coming in and he started getting new hardware
delivered.  They couldn't understand how sending off a cassette every
couple of months led to an income.

The difference is kids don't just have access to the resources these days
but they don't have older people telling them not to bother and just to
follow their Dads footsteps into a dying industry.
