I know some other schools have started similar programs - but I thought I'd point out that WPI started a new program specifically for game development/design/art/etc.: Interactive Media & Game Development. They've also recently redesigned their undergrad CS curriculum - although I think that was mainly to be more accessible to non-majors (e.g. ECE's, etc. - WPI being a primarily engineering school).

Considering many hospitals are funded through their municipalities (counties, etc.), I don't see how this ends up being a dramatic change. If someone gets treatment and isn't able to pay - the hospital eats the cost == the funding source (city/county/state/paying customers/etc.) eats the cost. So, how is this any different from the situation we have today?

Despite the complexity, challenge, and sheer effort that goes into delivering results to their desktops, as far as users are concerned it could all be a mashup.

Nobody's gonna believe that computers are intelligent until they start coming in late and lying about it.
