  1. Thomas,
    I absolutely agree with the idea that our children need to be programming literate. I think it has gone beyond academia for decades into the realm of trade, and the mistique of it is now unjustified and often a false barrier implied by teachers to their students. I already have one child programming web pages, in good time I will have all three of my kids programming, too. My neighbors also know that I feel its important that their kids get exposed to programming as well. Thank you for another good show!
