In case you've never seen or heard our dear friend and guest writer Jer Thorp speak on stage, this is a simple must. His talk from TEDxVancouver last November is finally online. Jer talks about the summer of 1985, when his father came home with a classic Mac. Loaded on that machine was a revolutionary program called HyperCard, which for him (and thousands of others) opened a door to expressivity through programming. Jer talks about personal work as well as most recent at NYTimes.
