I disagree that attempting serious use of Cocoa before completely learning C is bad. However, I completely agree that the importance of learning C needs more emphasis everywhere in the Cocoa world. It's often sold as being some magical new kingdom unto itself where you can just "get it" and make things happen. You and I both know it doesn't work like that. I don't think your concerns are misplaced, but I think this series is an excellent start to move aspiring Cocoa programmers from nothing to something and maybe entice them to learn more about this craft.
