TITLE: Quick Thoughts on "Computational Thinking" AUTHOR: Eugene Wallingford DATE: September 07, 2010 4:53 PM DESC: ----- BODY: When Mark Guzdial posted his article Go to the Data, offering "two stories of (really) computational thinking", I thought for sure that I'd write something on the topic soon. Over four and a half weeks have passed, and I have not written yet. That's because, despite thinking about it on and off ever since, I still don't have anything deep or detailed to say. I'm as confused as Mark says he and Barb are, I guess.

An occasional short program can often expose truths that elude the naked eye. -----
