“When human beings acquired language, we learned not just how to listen but how to speak.  When we gained literacy, we learned not just how to read but how to write.  And as we move into an increasingly digital reality, we must learn not just how to use programs but now to make them.” --Douglas Rushkoff, Program or Be Programmed:  Ten Commands for a Digital Age, 2012
