[Itech] Return to the "apple way"

Hi Graduates,

Having grown up in the 70's (yes I am that old!) and having worked for
Apple when the Woz and Jobs were in the office and had brown bag lunches
with you, I am seeing more and more of the need to return to programming
being taught in schools and the building of computers -- all things that
were the norm in my early adult life. I taught AP Computer Science and
Computer Math over a 9 year stretch in K-12 along with my science duties.

I guess it is "Back to the Future" in many ways.

Here is some info that really got me to thinking about this:

Kano is the first computer kit for everybody. Make, play, code, and level
yourself up. Coming to Kickstarter on November 19th. Sign up: http://kano.me

You might also want to look at the LiveCode website as well...programming,
is back in the schools and is being widely sought internationally in K-12.
