Better to be a dispensable programmer. Teach others and share knowledge and understanding and make the team as a whole "Built To Last" (http://www.amazon.com/Built-Last-Successful-Visionary-Compan...).

Jeff Bezos once said his favorite business book is Built to Last (http://www.amazon.com/Built-Last-Successful-Visionary-Compan...). You can still hear him use language from that book in recent interviews.

Read Jim Collins' Built to Last. His thesis is that visionary corporations don't result from markets or products or ideas, but from cultures. Entrepreneurs whose companies survive for centuries work very hard to create a whole system of values and beliefs and purpose and then institutionalize them into every aspect of the organization. Clock-builders, not time-tellers.
