Earl, This was a fantastic interview series. I am one of those folks that Chuck coerced into learning programing by including BASIC in the C64.

Chuck\'s comments about age discrimination are very disturbing to me as a 34 year old OO developer. OO and RDBMS didn\'t really exist until the 60s-70s. Wouldn\'t we want the people who were around in the initial days of this tech developing and giving guidance with these technologies? In my personal experience in the development world over the past 10 years, older is better.
