CMU has for years run an "executive workshop for executives on computer 
science", which is a model I had in mind. My hunch is that such 
workshops are probably too much about the lone-macho algorithmisit 
rather than the huge structural problems that programming faces. We 
might be stuck there  -- Matthias
