;Hello Logo fellows!
;I redirect this message which I had recieved from KW Melvin.
Hello Mhelhefny:

I am going to have to agree with you on that. I am starting
my study of Logo in order to attain a clarity of mind. As far
as it being considered a language for kids, that doesn't
bother me anymore. I think I will learn better if I can get
my "inner child" involved in the learning process. I am
interested in explorations, using Logo. The exploring I
am interested in doing is that of self-discovery.

Thank-you very much for introducing me to some of the
movers and shakers on the mailing list.

>;Brian Harvey: the creator of UCBLogo the only free logo to my knowledge.

This man is really quite incredible. After briefly
corresponding with him via email, I purchased
several of his books (Computer Science Logo Style
Volumes 1-3, and Simply Scheme, the prequel to
Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs,
also known as "The Wizard Book" ). I have also
downloaded and installed his UCBLogo, which
I am running in DOS.

>;George Mills: who had ported UCBLogo to MSWLogo with many extensions.

I remember downloading and using an early version
of MSWLogo, several years ago. However, I decided
to learn QBasic instead. I am a registered user of his
digital circuit logic program called MMLogic 1.0. It is
really quite a nice program for learning basic electronics.
I also have downloaded a recent version of MSWLogo,
and am running it in Windows 3.1.

I haven't met Yehuda yet. I do read his posts!

Wow! A PhD... teaching 7th graders? My, they have
highly qualifed teachers in Russia, no? <grin> No
wonder the Russians have such a reputation for

I already owe you a great deal. Your posted demos
are quite incredible, and have gotten quite a few
"oohs and ahhhs!" from my wife and myself.

Thank-you also for such a warm welcome to the mailing list!

This is also exquisite. Thank-you for
posting this and the other delicate
drawings. I will go to Deja News and
see how many I can find!

Once again, I am so impressed with the power of Logo
