As people, we are tool using animals. The computer is the ultimate tool. *That* is what people should learn. A computer engineering education means learning about logic gates, the von Neumann architecture, CPU design, assembly programming, a low level language, operating system construction, compiler construction -- and then a computer becomes useful to you as a tool you can fully control. I will grant that an extremely high functioning individual like Bloomberg can probably deduce a lot about how computers work through experience and running a technology company, but half his middle management probably couldn't get a clue in a field full of horny clues in the middle of clue mating season -- they'll have to learn the hard way, and if learning Ruby in X weeks gets them closer, then I can hardly disapprove.
