I'm not sure you read the whole post here.

He never said he felt he was stuck... nor did it sound like he was having trouble finding or keeping a job since he's currently employed in a position where he gets consistently good feedback and doesn't seem like he wants to leave.

The main point is to challenge some of the stereotypes in the development community about each attribute he lists in the article. He DEFINITELY doesn't seem like he's "not invested enough time in learning" (I mean... it's right there... The man's full title is Dr. Jaakko Kangasharju), but these points don't sound like a person who feels stuck or is looking for advice on how to get out, but more like a great programmer who is mystified at some of the prevailing biases (Age discriminatory, anti-academia, anti-work-life balance, anti-mid-career switchers, etc) currently prevalent in the industry.
