Sure, I admit that this seems very heady.

I share it despite that concern because after playing with this tool for the past 45 minutes or so (including installation and troubleshooting). I am not sure how much I will use it in my day to day (novice) programming. But, it interests me mostly because of the alternative way of modeling systems in the teaching of computer programming, which I am in the process of doing with teacher candidates in a course I am teaching at Pace University's School of Education.

Since models -- mental and otherwise -- determine how we learn and process things, this seems really promising to me.


More as it happens.
