Hi, all,

About a year ago or so, there was a discussion of whether Lua was the
best language for a beginner.  As I recall the consensus was "no" but
some suggestions were made for other languages. One of them caught my
eye as especially appropriate for children and I thought I had
bookmarked it, but either the bookmark or the discussion in the
archives. Does anyone remember enough of it to find the thread again?

The reason I am asking is that about a week ago I met an 8-year-old
girl named Hunter whose obvious brilliance very simply rocked me on my
heels. (I'm going on 67 years old and this was the first time I'd had
such an experience.) She has no computer. So with her mother's
permission I am buying her a used laptop. I'd like to equip the laptop
with that programming language's interpreter and its tutorials. (I'm
also going to bring her to the attention of some people I know who
work with gifted children.)

Best regards,
