A techinical consultant as I would define is a person having backgrounds in business as well as techno domains. Needless to say that tech consultants have to be experienced and well versed with the trends and scenario in the relevant industry since important decisions are taken based on the opinion of such consultants.

A programmer on the other hand does not need to have business background as the job demands effective pro architecture solutions based on business logic promoted by the project leaders and/or anlaysts. There may as well be situations where a programmer has to double up as both.

I prefer not to comment on who gets a bigger check though I believe that pay is/should-be proportional to the ability and the contribution rather than the designation.

To become a tech consultant one should have lots and lots of experience and good contacts as well :D

this one post was worth more than the cost to join (free!). I learned so much, especially since I've been tasked with a report on a typical vs. a programmer, along with defining each as completely as possible -- great info, thanks guys!
