Computational Thinking

I know this is slightly off topic for LtU, but I see Philip Wadler is collecting material aimed at introducing students and the general public to the discipline of computation, a subject near and dear to my heart.

I will not elaborate my thoughts on this subject here, but I remind people interested in this topic to search the LtU archive (specifically the teaching and learning department) since items related to this goal have appeared here occasionally.

This is also a chance to mention again my suggestion that someone translate Doug Hofstadter's Scientific American columns introducing Scheme to a general audience into Haskell.

Lamm: as it happens, I have the 50 or so pages from the three chapters in Metamagical Themas scanned onto my computer (big 6 meg JPEGS, many not even flipped). Would you be interested in hosting them or passing them onto to somone who might want to use them?
