      I too am a strong believer in being able to learn from anyone and I practice that concept daily. I was merely trying to point out a potential "stigma" associated with alternative approach being presented.

      I believe you, and I would suspect most people on this list also believe
      you.

      But, think of who the target audience is: well-entrenched IT professionals
      who are used to "the status quo," where new graduates learn about "how it
      works" from the seasoned professionals.

      It's not us, the people on this list, that you have to convince - it's the
      old-school, entrenched people, who are not as likely going to listen to
      students.
