Adventures in Dataflow

"How can we democratize computing?" — that is a sentiment echoed by many people, especially those of us in tech who realize what the general audience is missing out from computing devices, when they use them as passive consumers. If we think of computing devices as programmable tools for active exploration, how should they look like? What programming model should they be based on? It's fair to assume that it shouldn't look like what passes for regular programming nowadays, since that is clearly out of touch with users. Perhaps something more... declarative? ...minimalistic? So, how can we bring declarative and minimalistic computing to the masses? And... maybe we have already?
