There's a distinct possibility we will get to natural language programming. Many of the comments above say that people don't think logically, and that is true. They will not sit down and dictate the entire operation of an application from A to Z flawlessly on their first attempt. The process will be necessarily iterative. Something like this:

"Make a page that shows me my stock quotes and the weather."
"Put the weather in the top right."
"The weather should show the current temperature and the 24 hour forecast for my current location."
"For the stocks, show the current trading price for Microsoft and Bill's Sweat Socks from the TSE"
"Also show an up/down arrow for the four hour trend"

This will take some work, but I don't think we're too far away.
