    I started this wiki because of Seymour Papert's accident in 2006 and because I had begun work on another wiki containing example Logo projects including video tutorials, images, and text. It got me thinking about the past. I encourage contributions and have set up space in this wiki for other people's contributions. (See Logo.Adventurers.) You are welcome to add to that page or create a new one.
    I received a Lifetime Achievement Award at Constructionism 2016. Here is my presentation giving a look at Logo's history.
    I also received the 2016 NCWIT Pioneer Award.
    In looking for early records of the past I found very few pictures and videos, but posted what I had. (We mostly had taken screen images.) The earliest pictures I have are from 1969. I did find a few from the early 1970s. Here are Marvin and Seymour in 1971. {headshot.jpg} headshot.jpg
    This wiki is an experiment in collecting and presenting material on Logo.

    I apologize for the redundancy.
    In celebration of Logo at 50 I submitted a paper to a special issue of the International Journal of Child-Computer Interaction. Most of the paper was written in 1970. {cynthia.seymour.specialissue1.docx}

    My View of the History of Logo Especially 1967-1987
    {marvinalan.jpg} {19.jpg} {wally.png} {19.jpg}
    I started designing Logo, a language for learning, with Seymour Papert and Wally Feurzeig in 1966 at Bolt, Beranek and Newman, Cambridge, Massachusetts. In 1967 we had a working version of Logo implemented in Lisp running on a time-shared SDS 940. Before I collaborated with Wally and Seymour I worked for Marvin Minsky at the MIT AI Lab as his secretary. Seymour started his work with Marvin before the BBN collaboration and in the summer of 1969 I joined Papert and Marvin Minsky at the MIT AI Lab and the Logo Group was formed. Wally at BBN continued work with Logo.

    We all had a Lisp background so procedural thinking was a natural component. In fact we initially thought of it as Baby Lisp or Lisp without parens.
    Danny started implementing Logo in Lisp on BBN's SDS 940. He gave it over to me and I gave it to Dick.
    At Constructionism2012 Celia Hoyles and Gary Stager talk to Wally Feurzeig and me about the start of Logo.
    Here Seymour talks about Logo and Basic.
    Seymour articulates the goals for Logo the language.
