Well, maybe because he uses HtdP as course material - and where else to 
post if not here?

Although of course there is a valid point here - the pace of HtdP is 
probably too fast for wooks' students. So this forum is maybe not the 
optimal one.

But then again: as long as there is no "HtdP light" out there - where 
else to post? ;-)

OTOH: there's also a chance for HtdP in this.
As HtdP (or programming education, for that matter) broadens its domain, 
more and more students with wildly different backgrounds will be exposed 
to it. And one-size-fits-all is likely not the best approach...
So: Where is "HtdP light"?
