My counter-responses:
I am not obsessed with programming.
Perhaps your definition of the word "many" differs from mine.
As to programming expanding your mental horizons, it's commonly accepted. Do some research.
I think you meant "lose" (the opposite of gain, or win) not "loose" which is the opposite of "tight."
A major point of the syllabus is that there are myriad ever-changing technologies, but that there are certain basics/constants that are necessary.
