You probably read yesterday's news that global warming stopped increasing, that the Arabs and Israelis finally came to a two state solution, and that Ebola stopped spreading in West Africa. All of these near-miraculous events happened because of President Obama's Mighty Line of Code. I hope you don't think that I have become a cynical curmudgeon, but I can't help wondering how much more good he could have done if he had stayed at his computer long enough to write two lines ... or ... dare I say it, three lines?????
On the other hand, I also wonder how many kiddies will turn to their tutors, ten minutes into their "Hour of Code", and say, "That's it. I'm outta here. If one line was good enough for the president ... but, hey, that was great fun. Let's do this again next year in the next Computer Science Education Week."
