Probably...how ubiquitous it is? I wish it had occurred to me sooner how often I interact with things that are programmed: calculators, POS systems, automatic doors, traffic lights, etc...

Once I did it gave me a deeper appreciation for programs, their creators, and their uses. For a while I was only associating programming with websites and databases and games and etc... the stuff I think a lot of people are familiar with.
