BASIC, kids, programming.

Good article about the inaccessibility of programming as relating to kids:

I’m glad he mentioned Python and Chipmunk basic. Otherwise I was going to dismiss him as a crank.

Some language (say that could be used in the command prompt) would be a better than the current situation on Windows (and let’s not talk about batch files :-D ). At least you've got some programming languages with MacOSX (e.g. Python/Perl from the terminal, Xcode with C/C++/ObjC/Java on CD).

The most powerful invention of the 20th century is the programmable computer and the one that will have the most impact of the 21st century.
