I still firmly believe that computing has the potential to revolutionize science. But I also believe that if we don't learn from past efforts to make it part of mainstream scientific education, this potential will go unrealized. Focusing on everyday skills might not give university presidents something to issue a press release about, but they'll have more impact on the quality of computational science in the coming decade than anything else we can do.
