I Am Grateful For Having Learned BASIC From Dr. Kemeny
I learend BASIC from Dr. Kemeny in 1969, who was the president of Dartmouth at the time. I wasn't very good at it, but the knowledge that I could program if I put my head to it prepared me for the computer revolution to come. I was never afraid of technology after my Dartmouth years. Here I am at 63, a lawyer, mediator, author, and speaker, as technically saavy and comfortable with a vast array of machines and software. Many of my peers are confused and befuddled by it. I cannot believe the foresight that Drs. Kemeny and Kurtz had back then. I am grateful.
