February 27/365 Objects

We don’t form our children; we blindly surround them with a million variables, with which they form themselves. When my boy attempts to explain his programming work, I float, lost on an ocean of data that I cannot place into any memory. Yet I know that he navigates these structures, understands a certain art, and creates a language, eloquent and valuable.

“In computer science, an object can be a variable, a data structure, a function, or a method, and as such, is a location in memory having a value and referenced by an identifier.”
– from “Object (computer science),” Wikipedia.com

  1. My son is a programmer too. He doesn’t attempt to explain his work to me, but he used to talk at length about ham radio issues. I like your “floating” image. I simply glazed over.
