It's a challenge for sure and not one I would want to double down on by driving cross-country in. Good Luck!

As someone who was privileged (back in the day) to have (two) Computer Science classes (one intro and one AP prep) as high school electives, I see this as great. 

Moreover, to those who wish to point out that too many CPS students are illiterate, don't graduate and this is a pie in the sky rose colored glasses PR stunt, I find your attitude alarmingly fatalistic.

Wired is 20 years old this month.  I just came across this paragraph in an article I once wrote for Newsweek, marking some anniversary of the browser:

Just about the only place you could get something to eat at 4 in the morning in Champaign, Ill., in early 1993 was a convenience store called the White Hen Pantry. "It's kind of a Midwest 7-Eleven," says Marc Andreessen, who would often stumble out of his workspace at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at ungodly hours in search of sustenance. Andreessen, 21 years old at the time, and fellow NCSA worker Eric Bina were working on a program they called Mosaic. One night at the White Hen, Andreessen scanned the newsstand and saw the first issue of a magazine called Wired. "I thought, 'Wow, this is pretty interesting stuff'," he recalls of the magazine that promised to treat technology as a cultural breakthrough. "But you know what? The magazine didn't mention the Internet once."

Introduction
I've been hooked on technology since elementary school and have yet to look back. 

With my personal understanding I've worked in a wide variety of computing environments ranging from public elementary schools and political campaigns to pioneering open source companies and local businesses.
