A Personal Perspective on Logo’s Early Years, Legacy and Ongoing Potential

Wally Feurzeig was the led the project that produced Logo and the first educational robot – the Turtle.  In this paper delivered at the 2007 Euro Logo Conference in Bratislava Wally presents some fascinating details about the development of Logo and Turtles.  It puts many of the issues into context.  If like me you are interested in the history of the development it does answer some of the mysteries hidden in the sands of time.  More importantly it revives the educational philosophical precepts that offered such hope.  Alas it also discusses how the influence of political bean-counters have strangled something so beautiful.
