This is terrible news. California is full of people who are structurally unemployed due to technological incompetence. The vast majority of "licensed teachers" know nothing about coding. Why obstruct hackers who teach valuable skills to others?

Do you have a cite for that? Nationwide there's very little evidence of structural unemployment, and I'd be surprised to find that California (which is a state people tend to be interested in living in) has an unusual problem with finding skilled workers.
