Question: Thanks Justin! Actually your advice on learning in order to make something you wanted was extremely helpful! Were you ever at a place of having to choose between pursuing a longer-term, 'impractical' goal that made you curious and interested vs learning in-demand skills that you weren't interested in to Get A Job to pay bills?

    I was never put in a position where I had to put aside things that I was interested in in order to work a job I didn't like, and for that I am incredibly grateful!

Question: some people are trying to mess the flow of this forum up on purpose it looks like, well that's fun. don't they realize justin frankel is a company not a person? its a microsoft pet project, winamp wasn't sold to aol, it was put under the aol label so aol doesn't look completely embarrassingly dead in the water, and cause a huge discussion around it

    I am interested in water yeah, though the words detoxify and re├źnergize are a bit loaded. I really liked swimming in Copenhagen's harbor, which has been cleaned up sufficiently...

Question: Thanks Justin. How do I figure out what the heck programming is and what it means and what an algorithm is and what object oriented programming means? And stuff like that? Like, an idea of the larger state of things and the general terminology before I start poking around specifically in Javascript?

    Personally I tend to be goal-oriented and learn things in order to make things happen, but it's been so long since I've been early in the curve that it's hard for me to give any useful advice!
