st: RE: mata courses?
You should turn this round. You should make it
clear what kind of course you would most like.
I am pretty clear that there would be some
demand for _advanced_ Mata, but much more
for _introductory_ Mata.

Right now, further extending Mata is more obviously
a priority than teaching it.
I have to guess, Kremlinologically and impertinently,
that a Mata course will be definitely be offered sooner or later,
and it will assume
(1) access to Stata 9
but it will not assume
(2) any previous study of Mata.
My guess is also that some experience of programming
in a C-like language will help a lot.
