SHARE THIS with your kids, please!

This is the most inspiring thing I’ve seen all year (so far).  Way back when, someone very wise told me, “Kevin, you should seriously think about getting into computers.”  I had been hacking around with a music sequencing program on my Dad’s Apple ][+, and from them minute he said that to me, it stuck in the back of my mind; and ultimately determined the course of my professional life.

This video (put out by Code.org) absolutely hits the nail on the head.  I hope that many kids, and really anyone looking for an inspiration to their next professional career direction, will see this and consider investigating software development.

What about you?   Are you inspired?  Or do the feelings expressed in the video match what you’ve experienced like I have?
