That said, there is no indication that Notes/Domino's future is limited. IBM continues to make substantial investments in improving and expanding the functionality of the Notes client and of Domino, including tying it in with other IBM technologies including Workplace, DB2 and WebSphere.
The Notes client is very popular -- we continue to sell millions of copies yearly -- and won't be going away anytime soon. Workplace is closely integrated with Domino, and can easily be used as a portal for Domino applications. Therefore, as you think about extending your skills, Workplace is a good area to focus on. Your Domino development skills will not become obsolete, but can also be applied in this area.
