Scratch!

It has finally been released to the public. This is very cool and (hopefully) very important. I always thought that Logo was tremendously interesting and important as a tool for kids to learn modeling and problem solving, but the reading/typing requirements were to high for, say, a 6 or 8 year old.

So, a graphic oriented way to program sounds about right these days, especially if capable of doing multimedia. Squeak Etoys seemed to have to high of a bar for beginners, but Scratch seems just about right...
