well face it pd is a programming language, how many programming languages
are used by people that don't qualify as a "certain kind of techie person" ?

no, it happens when you start to teach it, make music with it or use it in
your installations etc...

We use it a lot in our school 

* to introduce basic programming concepts
* to present basic dsp theory
* showing how to hook up pd/gem/pdp and a bunch of shell, python, php 
  scripts as a basis and a flexible framework for all sorts of media 
  art projects.
