Advice From An Old Programmer

"Programming as an intellectual activity is the only art form that allows you to create interactive art. You can create projects that other people can play with, and you can talk to them indirectly. No other art form is quite this interactive. Movies flow to the audience in one direction. Paintings do not move. Code goes both ways.”

Learn Python The Hard Way, Zed A. Shaw.

It is not the only art form to create interactive art, but who cares or dares to disagree: Zed A. Shaw is Chuck Norris (for programmers, Motherfucker!)
