“Ten years before T.H.E. Journal was launched , Logo was designed as a programming language that could be accessible to children. The spirit of the enterprise was like the way the Wright brothers approached aviation: I thought of giving children the power to program computers as a tiny first step in a complex process whose details could not be anticipated.
What is most impressive for me looking back now from the vantage point of seeing the best recent uses of Logo, is a sense of the richness of these unanticipated developments.”
