This has nothing to do with us – has it?

This (TEDxExeter) talk by Simon Peyton Jones is about the brand new subject of ‘computer science’. Nothing to do with art, craft and design then. But he talks about: too much focus on technology and not enough on ideas; about children becoming imaginative creators of technological things; about being creative writers as well as appreciative readers; about being engaged, curious and playful. I can’t help feeling it could have something to do with us.
