One of my views is that you should figure out what you want to make before you figure out what you want to learn. Once you have a functional idea of what you are doing, then it is easier to pick something similar, or look to library repositories (CPAN, gems, etc) and decide what you want to do.

If you aren't in a tech hotspot and you aren't chasing jobs, it doesn't matter what you learn. It matters what you make and how you can sell yourself.
