I firmly believe that everyone should have a basic understanding of C.

Such a beautiful article, as a Software Engineering undergrad , I've always felt like I was learning an old language, whenever I met with other programmers who are doing Web- based development, Python or Ruby, but after reading this article , I now know why so many of them are learning script languages and so forth instead of C, its fear!

Actually the reason most of my basic coding skills were cemented was due to C. Had it not be for that rigor I don't think my coding intuition would have been as decent as it is today. I miss working with C sometimes.
