sorry matthias and steve, you'll get this twice, but i emailed the list
from the wrong address...

i agree with the above comments, but you also could check out Douglas
Rushkoff's "Program or Be Programmed".  In the tradition of Marshall
McLuhan's concept of "the medium is the message", understanding programming
gives us a bit of control over the media revolution that is changing the
world.  When programs become the interface for commerce, social
interaction, politics, and so on, having a level of literacy in programming
allows us to be critical of the biases of this digital media.  I don't
think it is ever a waste of time to try and understand what is going on in
the world around us.
