>> furious effort over the past few years to bring the teaching of programming into the core academic curricula

They tried this in the early 1980s and all we got was the Internet at everyone's home, online shopping and news, free video conferencing, entirely new ways to organize photos, transportation and events, realism-quality video gaming, and cell phones so easy to use that toddlers can participate in the world wide web.

What good could coding literacy possibly do now?
