It has certainly started off well, but now I need to get back to doing 
the stuff that gets me paid for the afternoon so I'll have to read more 

Perhaps the people at O'Reilly have decided that they'll be out of 
business in 10 years? If not, their higher ups should really understand 
that trying to promote better technical education in schools will 
increase the attractiveness of their offerings over time.

There I go bringing this 'logic' thing in again. I'll stop!
