Douglas Rushkoff – Blog – CNN: Why I am learning to code and you should, too

Douglas Rushkoff on why everyone should learn to code.

…[W]e now live in a world with apps, networks, and stock market trading algorithms that we use, even though desperately few of us understand how they work. And while learning to code may have once been an arduous or expensive process, the college dropouts who developed Codecademy have democratized coding as surely as Gutenberg democratized text. Anyone can go to Codecademy and start learning and creating code through their simple, fun, interactive window, for free.

I’m on the second week taking the Code Year courses and I’m loving every minute of it.
