    See teaching.
  • What can we learn from the history of visual programming about the future of programming education and accessibility?
    See visual programming.
  • What would a true personal computer look like — both functionally and aesthetically?
    See do you compute?
  • How do we re-train people to appreciate and crave the high-density urban lifestyle that we need to adopt in order to keep our planet afloat?

  • How can we create more of the mud from which the good ideas for the future will come from by inspiring impact and agency in individuals?
