Code is great, but is it enough?

Unless you’ve recently travelled to Pluton, you know how Code has taken the web by storm last week. With Zuck, Gates, Dorsey and other internet superstars as ambassadors, we’ve discovered that coding isn’t actually difficult, and if you know how to program a computer, chances are you’re likely to become a rockstar.

Yeah.

Tell me about the American dream.

I’ve never coded – yet I don’t feel dumber than those who know how to do so. But don’t get me wrong, I actually wish the Code initiative had been around in the 90s and it’s been long since I made plans to take classes, so I’m sure the current Code vavavoom will help. Thanks for that leaders and trendsetters.

Now if programming a computer should be taught in school, what about cooking? What about sewing? What about DIY-ing? What about giving first-aid?

These might not teach you how to think and for sure ain’t sexy. But they will teach you life. As in ‘real-life’. You know ? The every-day-kind-of-life.

Only saying…

Be Brave in 2013

We had to be brave this year. We had to win the elections. Control the wars , save the planet.
Forget the crisis. Stop spreading this ugly C-word. Stop playing good cop bad cop. We may have our differences but know this : People are meant to have trust. It’s time to jump off our internet planet and Kiss on the first date. No matter the outcome. Shout to shout and heal to heal.
Cool caring boys and sweet voiced girls. Sit down and rethink the word change. Bring your friends.
And whisper your favourite stories to each other. It’s happy hour. If there’s one thing I’ve learned in my short life, is this : never repress anything. I’ve known this people all my life. I know how these people feel. I know how I have to feel : I have to feel brave.
