I was wandering in some old articles for a research I'm doing, and ended up
finding this article[1].

Very beautiful and well argued article about teaching programming, specially to
high school students (I think it is specially relevant for those in the US, but
the concepts are for everywhere).

Anyone else has read it and wanted to share some thoughts?

Harvey). http://el.media.mit.edu/Logo-foundation/pubs/papers/symbolic_vs_ap.html

Someone once called me "just a dreamer"
That offended me, the "just" part.
Being a dreamer is hard work. 
It really gets hard when you start believing in your dreams.
