Hello world!

“Welcome to WordPress.com. This is your first post. Edit or delete it and start blogging!”

Apparently, I haven’t figured out how to delete this automatic post/want to keep it for posterity. As a bit of background, ‘Hello world!’ was this simple program everybody in computer science had to write – a message that would print on your computer screen those amazing words ‘Hello world!’ Obviously somebody on WordPress had the idea of adding this somewhat dated and I think kind of ridiculous pillar of programming. I think there are more interesting ‘first programs’ to teach. Or maybe it’s simply too deeply rooted into the nostalgia, history, and culture of programming for them to let it go, like the keyboard layout. Anyway, that’s my critique.
