Just as the “Hello World” prompt is often the first output ever generated by someone learning a new programing language this post will be my first foray into the world of blogging. This is a place with which I am not comfortable in. Yet this is a place that I am eager to explore largely because of Dr. Campbell’s incredible enthusiasm towards both the power and meaning behind blogging. Dr. Campbell spoke of the Internet and computers in ways that had never crossed my mind. Instead of a tool to be used Dr. Campbell referred to Alan Kay’s statement “The computer is an instrument whose music is ideas”. He encouraged us to “join the band” and I am eager to try my luck pickin’ on the street corner with my colleagues. Some seem to play elegantly already but others like myself are just taking their instruments out their cases.
