I’m a big fan of things like this. There will come a point, of course, where programmers are no longer an elite class and are as commonplace as authors trying to make the next big novel, but I’ll be white-haired by then. but out of the commonplace programmers, a few will stand up above the rest.
My generation of hackers/programmers and the one before me, were the ones that helped made the Internet of today.
Generation Y is improving it tremendously.
And Generation Z? Well, the world is going to be simply amazing. I have great hopes and it’s things like this, planting seeds far and wide and seeing what grows.
