Should first-time programmers learn RPG?

I have several years' experience with AS/400's and plan to learn programming. Should I learn RPG or start with a new technology?

RPG is a good core competency. There is a tremendous amount of RPG code out there, and you need to build from there into the next generation of open systems.
