Yes, a wonderful interview Walter!
It's rare that a journalist quotes so much of what an interviewee
says; it's a sign that the Sugar Labs education message is unusual and
deserves to be heard.
A very key point to me is the essential "critical thinking" issue. In
ten years or so there will be thousands of young adults who started
out with Sugar who will be speaking their minds about what we do.
There may be praise, or we may even be disappointed by what they tell
us. It's possible that general computing will move to a more intuitive
paradigm and make today's Sugar seem quaint. But those judgments by
our Learners, the critical thinkers of the next generation to come,
are something to motivate us.
