Hello all,

It's a good time of the year to take stock and reflect. A recent CNN
article (link below) begins, "Like a first love or a first car, a first
computer can hold a special place in people's hearts. For millions of
kids who grew up in the 1980s, that first computer was the Commodore 64.
Twenty-five years later, that first brush with computer addiction is as
strong as ever."



For you, what was that first piece of hardware, software, or internet
application that captured your imagination and brought you in to the
technophile/techie fold?

When working with your students is there something that is sure to get
them hooked and motivated to explore using new technologies?



I was a Commodore 64 owner myself. It was mostly used for playing Pong,
but it was fun and was a gateway. How about you?
