Surviving at the Top

Until December 13
the Hour of Code

an event created
by the non-profit Code.org

to encourage instructors
to give each of their students

one hour of time
learning computer science

is in progress.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos
did a rare Tweet

offering to send Donald Trump
into space

after Trump Tweeted
that Bezos

was using his purchase
of The Washington Post

as a tax shelter
for the online store.

Bezos may already
have a rocket

through his private space company
Blue Origin

but in this case
maybe a world of kids

each with one line of C
or one neuron
of a rocket's brain

at a time

are the future

(and maybe so are
some bankrupt
Trump space hotels).
