“Programming could be much much easier most of the time. This unnecessary difficulty wastes the effort of professional programmers, but worse, prevents many people from programming at all. The problem is a nasty hairball of culture and technology and money that is not easily untangled”
Jonathan Edwards, the author of this article, remembers
HyperCard for “enabling millions of novices to build
Who said LiveCode lost sight of that? Oh, it was me.
Actually, I understand why RunRev (the former company name that publishes LiveCode) do not want to sell LiveCode as a HyperCard replacement.
LiveCode is multi-platform and this single fact set it apart from all previous x-talk languages.
In my humble opinion, the future of programming would be driven by artificial intelligence assistants and multiple ways of working and interfacing with the computer using voice, gaze interaction, gesture, motion, pointer, keyboard, etc…

How are all these artifical intelligence assistants, and various drivers needed for the various forms of input you suggest built?
I don’t think there are any magic beans around you can plant to have them appear.

One of Team USA Captains is Leah Smith, a swimmer from Pittsburgh by way of the JCC Sailfish, Oakland Catholic, UVA and now swimming as a professional and training in Tuscon, Arizona, when she isn’t at altitude.
The Saturday Swim School is a labor of love with Coach Mark Rauterkus and a crew of other volunteers. We’re looking for Scouts, summer-swimmers, future lifeguards, and former Summer Dreamers to come out and join us as well.
With Summer Dreamers in 2018, #SDA18, our regular, daily, Swim & Water Polo Team Meeting is going to include some circle time. This new program wrinkle comes on the wake of a school district push to Restorative Justice.
A few years ago, a friend, Richard King, PhD, helped to launch and lead a practice with circles with the students in a program he championed, Mindful Gardening. He is not leading any SDA activities in 2018., sadly.
Wishing for sanity and dialog in recent seasons
In 2017 as well as in the early part of 2018, I would have welcomed the on going use of restorative practices within PPS programs. The kids were fine. I needed the circles among a few of the adults who were going in different directions.
This offers a dramatic mind shift for some at PPS. With us at the swim pool, not so much. Sure, it is a new wrinkle. New touchstones are going to be needed. But we have always had an approach that gives students a voice, some choices, and builds upon respect.
Ideas and tools to implement the new circle time at Swim & Water Polo are welcome. We hope to document the process and offer more examples.
