Scratch

Nice article today in the Boston Globe on Scratch, a programming language developed by the MIT Media Lab’s “Lifelong Kindergarten” group.
“Lifelong Kindergarten”? What a great name for a group!!
Scratch is a programming environment designed to lower the bar and enable more people to create interesting computer programs, and share them with one another. It’s also available for download!
I love efforts like this… making the fun of building things on a computer more accessible to everyone. How cool is that? Check out Scratch at scratch.mit.edu.
