Today is Labor Day in the United States and I want to express some gratitude for my good fortune, vis-à-vis the way I am able to labor. In 1982, I was a nine-year-old fourth grader, and computers were bulky boxes of magic, confined to a single room in the school. We had one 45-minute computer class per week. We usually used that time to play with super rudimentary educational programs. Mostly I remember math-based quizzes with laughably (by today’s standards) blocky graphics.
