Went to TED site to check out what’s new; found the cartoon, Think like a coder, explaining basic programming concepts (loop, condition, etc.), which checks every box in the woke playbook. Female protagonist? Check. Who represents morality (named Ethic)? Check. Who looks for "resistance leader" who is turns out to be also female, plus non-white? Check. To fight the machines that feed by destroying works of art and literature? Check.

I can’t even imagine who the target audience for this is. Small kids? The explanation of the coding problems might be a bit too fast for them. Teenagers? Probably; but won’t they puke from the moral righteousness of the narrative?
