Celebrating BASIC's 50th Anniversary

Over at Technologizer, Harry McCracken has written a great piece about the creation and evolution of the programming language BASIC. For people like me who were introduced to computers back in the early 80s this is a wonderful trip down memory lane.

Admittedly over the years I went on to learn much more sophisticated languages and programming techniques that BASIC would never support, but still my interest in computers and programming really wouldn’t exist at all without BASIC.

Like McCracken I also think the lack of a simple language like BASIC front and center on modern computers is bad thing.

@Paul Barbato You are seriously short-sighted. Really. Ketchup is a big industry but that is besides the point. These two kids picked a problem, made some designs, did revisions and produced their final solution. These are all problem solving skills. Today ketchup, tomorrow perhaps a problem YOU find worthy. Point is, they are creators and I applaud them and their effort. ....AND is it really so far fetched that something like this couldn't be the point of a new ketchup campaign? Because ofc the damn bottle can be shaken but how many times have you forgotten and squirt... wet bun. Consumer convenience bro, it sells... and so do marketable problem solving skills.
