I always say, there are two characteristics of good technical managers.  The 
obvious one is enough breadth and depth of technical knowledge to make 
generally good decisions about strategy and direction.  But at LEAST equally 
important, is the ability to know your team, know your resources, their 
motivations, their limits.  PEOPLE management.

Frankly, I rate myself as an intermediate python developer, who's also rusty.  
I'm a damn good sysadmin, and extremely computer-sciency in general, with a 
fair amount of access to compute resources.
