Learn C programming at Harvard for free #

David Malan has generously posted his entire fall 2007 Computer Science 50: Introduction to Computer Science I class online. This includes all video, audio, notes, slides, and source code. One wonders how O'Reilly School of Technology's Learn C Programming and others will fare given this free yet first-class offering. Here's the CS50 blurb:
Computer Science 50: Introduction to Computer Science I is a first course in computer science at Harvard College for concentrators and non-concentrators alike. More than just teach you how to program, this course teaches you how to think more methodically and how to solve problems more effectively. As such, its lessons are applicable well beyond the boundaries of computer science itself. That the course does teach you how to program, though, is perhaps its most empowering return. With this skill comes the ability to solve real-world problems in ways and at speeds beyond the abilities of most humans.
