I was very heartened to hear Gary Locock's views about broadening horizons. There is an awful lot of IT teaching that is a rip-off in the sense that it does not teach fundamentals but only how to use this or that package. This lumbers the student with a belief that it is all magic and with skills that are at best ephemeral.
