in reply to How to introduce 8 year olds to (Perl) programming?

I was programming device drivers in C and developing video games for my Atari when I was 8.

(Okay, okay. Actually I was still learning how to tie my shoes, but I could've been programming!)

    No, you were programming in that dirty word, PHP ;)

    Seriously though, C at 8 is pretty amazing.

    Ah, you were heavily involved in the booting process. ;-)

    When I was 8, most people had never seen a computer - heck, most people wouldn't know what a computer was. I certainly didn't! People still had to land on the moon on my 8th birthday.
