The Binary code...

It the school holiday; our eldest grandson [16 years] is redecorating his room. He had painted the room and decorating the wall his way. I went to have a look and he shows me what he has painted on one of the wall. I was surprised seeing it for the first time. It takes lots of planning and ingenuity to get that binary code on the wall. Above is what I saw on his wall. I ask him to translate that binary code onto a language that I could understand. He smile and said that it is his name. He then explains of what each line mean. Yes from the age of 2 years he has been interested in computer and its technology and now every time I get stuck with my computer I would turn to him for help. I am glad that at least one of our own is going into studying the IT [Information Technology]. The IT industry is in its infancy and there are move developments to come. It would be great to see this generation of Malaysian get involved in the invention and innovation of new IT products in the not too distance future.  

Have a nice day.

Wow..! 16 years old? He is so genius. Yea, IT industry and development is running on a fast track nowadays. What students learn in campus today has been obsolete 12 years ago. Guess, our education system has to run as fast as the IT develops.

Aziela Azila, thanks for the visit and the good words on the subject of this posting as well sharing your thoughts.

At just 2 years old when we were living in Boston he already knew of how to use the computer. We were wondering of how he could navigate the Widow 5 at that time with ease. Because he often ask Nenek for help when he is at the computer, Nenek eventually became computer literate. At least Nenek knows what a mouse and cursor are. Had it not for him Nenek would not be interested in computer at all.

Yes the IT industries is still young and we must have more and more of our own who are Software engineer or in the other IT discipline in order for us to progress in this new technology.

Next year he would be in Form V and I do hope he would do well and later on further his study in the IT discipline.

Have a nice day

Wow....children nowadays! They are fast learners and always want to be fast in whatever they are doing. Kita yang hendak belajar, teruk terkejar-kejar!1

Well it look like the kids of this generation move fast forward and I do not think our generation could catchup with them. I am glad that this grandson of our is taking an interest in the field of Computer science. We do need many of such professional in the future if we were to compete in the globalization world of the IT.

Have a nice day Sir and take care.
