Why Johnny Cant Program by Douglas Rushkoff is very informative to me. Because of this essay, I look at programs and users in a different manner. He points how users manage programs without having any knowledge of the real purpose the software. Before studying New Media Tech I was just like the kids, I would get on multiple websites and use multiple programs without giving one thought of how it was programed. There for, I totally agree with Douglas Rushkoff when he states, “Amazingly, America – the birthplace of the Internet – is the only developed nation that does not teach programming in its public schools.”
It was until I became familiar and aware with programing I was able to understand the making of programs.What I found to be disturbing is that American schools do not teach programming. America is the center of the Internet and students should not have to wait until college to learn programming .Technology is becoming extremely popular, more and more people are using it but do not recognizing how the programs really work .
