How robots can bring computer science for all to inspire the next generation of innovators
from The Huffington Post
Bill Gates wrote his first computer program in 1968 when he was 13 years old. It was a game of tic-tac-toe that allowed people to play against the computer. For the first time, he was able to get a machine to execute his commands perfectly. He felt an invigorating feeling of power and agency that he never experienced before. The Mothers Club at his school had purchased a Teletype Model 33 ASR terminal and some time on a GE computer. In those days computers were hard to come by, and getting time was expensive. Bill and his friends hacked the system to get free computer time. When they were caught and banned, the company that they hacked actually hired them to find bugs in exchange for computer time.
