Virtual Currency Becomes Real In South Korea 203

garylian writes "Massively is reporting that the South Korean Supreme Court has stated that virtual currency is the equivalent of real-world money. For those of you who might not be drawing the link, the core there is that selling in-game currency for real money is essentially just an exchange of currency and perfectly legal in South Korea. This could have sweeping implications for RMT operations the world over, not to mention free-to-play games and... well, online games in general. The official story is available online from JoongAng Daily."

Comment BASIC or Pascal (Score 1) 214

Personally I would recommend teaching BASIC or Pascal to high school students. Both of them were more or less designed for teaching or beginners.

Students that are not interested in computers can at least make little songs using beeps in BASIC in a few minutes with a little teaching but hopefully can continue learning more about programming or computers.

A good supervisor can step on your toes without messing up your shine.
