Seymour Papert 1928-2016

This post originally appeared on the Software Carpentry website.

Seymour Papert passed away on Sunday at the age of 88. I never had the privilege of meeting him, but Software Carpentry would probably never have existed if I hadn’t stumbled across his inspirational book Mindstorms. You can read more about his life and work here; when you’re done, please go and help someone learn something—I think he’d have liked that.
