comment Why should a digital photographer learn to shoot film?
@jrista-- I think we're going to have to agree to disagree. For me, this question is like asking "Why should a person who uses text messages send notes by carrier pigeon?" Sure, there are things you can learn about taking care of birds, but there are other, cheaper ways to learn the exact same skills. If you require obsolete technology to get out of an artistic rut, well, fine for you-- but it's not the only way to get out of the rut, and film to me is another way to get lost in technique without learning any better artistry.

I disagree, obviously. I think that 'slowing down' is not perfectly correlated with 'shooting film.' It is possible to develop all of the skills that everyone's listed as an advantage without shooting film. It is possible that he will learn a lot of skills that will be hard to use once companies stop making film developing solutions, ie, he will be developing obsolete skills.
