I'd like to flag what many list members will know. The 
Stata Journal has a "Mata matters" column led by 
William Gould. This started in Stata Journal 5(3) 
with a column on translating Fortran into Mata. 
The next column, due in 5(4) in December, will
discuss Mata views onto the dataset. 

While waiting for the Mata NetCourse, you can
thus learn about Mata matters from the Mata masters.
