Hi All (and sorry for the spam, if this qualifies as such),
(and, to the rcg) sorry for more heresy :)

Greg Wilson is a computer scientist who 'gets it'.  A lot of his work 
has been in the support of enabling non-computer geeks to understand 
computers and data, especially in research.  His online Software 
Carpentry course is one of the great resources no one knows about:

In addition, he's been interviewed recently at IT conversations:

[For those of you at the recent Research Computing Symposium who

He has a new book out: "Data Crunching: Solve Everyday Problems Using 
Java, Python, and more." is described at Amazon.

Altho you can get much of the contents via his Software Carpentry site 
(see above).
