I recently found a VHS tape about Generation WHY that includes a stunning appearance by Dr. Seymour Papert, saying some very flattering things about what is now known as Generation YES and their educational approach to 21st Century student empowerment, leadership and service.
The short video clip below is well worth watching. You might even take a look at Generation YES and TechYES.

Incidentally, the host of the 1998 video (above) is now serving in the Peace Corps in Africa.
