Discussion on: How did you first start out learning programming?

In general, I don't like this idiom. You should learn the tool that enables you to accomplish what you want. If your goal is to make a simple web application. It hardly makes sense to start off learning C. Can you imagine how discouraging that would be for a new programmer? I'm a seasoned programmer at this point, and I still don't like much about it.
