Scratch is for kids!

MIT researchers have recently released a new version of Scratch, a graphical programming language targeted to children. Scratch allows you to create interactive programs that use animation and sound. I especially like the programming language (shown on the right) that allows you to drag and drop constructs to create a program. It sure beats moving a turtle around the screen (how I miss those days at computer camp... smile)!
