Drop inscription?

I recently hit 450 with Inscription, and I was wondering if the new way they do glyphs kills Inscription? I am not really sure it does, I just noticed glyphs cost a bit more now than they used to.

I was wondering if this profession is worth having anymore, a friend of mine says before the change he used to make a lot of money selling glyphs but he dropped it because he said Blizzard ruined the profession. Just wondering if anyone out there had an opinion on this. Thanks!
Inscription will be fine, it just isn't the "print your own money" profession it was before the glyph revamp.

  • New glyphs will garner a high price in the first weeks of Cata.

  • There will always be new characters being rolled (new players and alts) that will need glyphs.

  • New blue off-hands, relics, and items for leveling. This one in particular I expect to be hot: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=89367

  • New Darkmoon trinkets: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=86615

  • HAY GUYZ, WE NEED A PRIEST BUFF: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=85785

  • Wait, maybe you can still print your own money: http://www.wowhead.com/spell=86609

So yeah, you can still make money with Inscription. It's just now you have to be more creative than clicking "Create Glyph" until your finger snaps off.
I'm most likely dropping Inscription, though I'm waiting to see what pans out for Engineering.

With no new glyphs coming in Cataclysm, there's not a lot of draw for me anymore.
