Less knowledgeable about database design, information systems theory,
programming itself (rather than specific language training)? Yes.  They
have a checklist of technologies all marked off, but do not seem interested
in or knowledgeable about broader IT issues.  And they are taught all the
past was merely prelude and to disdain older technologies.  Of course, 
this means that since they do not know history, they are doomed to repeat it.
