I have not been able to get the download to work. Is there a reason this is happening?

I thought this was a good intro to the basic principles. I was thinking of my students working with TurtleArt, Scratch, and Etoys and using this to help abstract some of the more general concepts of programming from what they had been doing.

Pretty good. A few places it could be improved. For example, in his
compression example, Page 28, he gets confused about bits and bytes.
And his page on Open Source is a bit off the mark IMHO. Still, it may
appeal to some. I'd be curious to get some teacher reactions.
