Give a boy your WIFI password, he’ll troubleshoot for the day.  Give a boy a programmable computer board, he’ll love computers for a lifetime… or something like that.

I’m not sure that makes any sense.

What does make sense is a new initiative in Britain is giving away mini-computers to 11 year old boys and girls in hope to get them interested in computer sciences.  It’s a small investment to excite the imaginations of the youth.  Hopefully this will be the new standard in places like the United States.

We also look at a new satellite that’s lost in space, seeing a “face” many light years away, and the big Microsoft mistake of creating an AI monster.
