When I was young, the very first thing I was exposed to that is close to programming was LOGO:
It was an eye-opener for me because I felt like, "hey, I can actually control this thing, and I can actually create something original.". Many years later I picked up interest in Visual Basic 5 myself.
Just recently I found out there's Small Basic.
My daughter is just two months old now. But if she shows the same interest at the same age as your son, I'd definitely pick Small Basic. It even has a curriculum. And a concept of 'graduation'.
I like the thought of it that it takes little effort to produce something that makes a child feel he/she has accomplished something, and that there's actually a goal to accomplish (i.e. to graduate). Plus, a child at that age needs to strengthen one's maths first. And if he/she is really good at it real quick, take on geometry.
The experience should be both playful, encouraging and satisfying. It should be an eye-opener, not something that needs to be too serious about.
Looking at a screen with only text all day long isn't really play. It's what I do everyday as an adult, i.e. work. And often frustrating.
And I can't imagine myself explaining the concepts of variables, arrays and stuff. Don't even start on explaining what should a child do when wierd errors occur. It might actually be discouraging.
Yep, Small Basic would be my choice.

Oh, and as for web programming, I started off with Classic ASP (you might remember this). It took me one or two years to master it.
I was surprised that it only took me less than three months to feel completely comfortable with PHP and even MySQL (but I'm already a working adult).
It's not how big of steps the child can make.
It's how strong the foundation the child can build for himself.
Given that, switching to another language later on would be a piece of cake, I'm quite confident about it.

I would say VBS, .NET, PHP and SQL, well MySQL too. These are a good start.
Thanks Computer Repair

A library is a building for a collection or books, magazines, periodicals and newspapers. The books are kept on the shelves in the stack room whereas the magazines, journals, etc. in the reading rooms. Modern libraries also have xerox rooms, and computer rooms.Good afternoon. It is a great honor for me to be here in Shanghai, and to have this opportunity to speak with all of you.There is a [url=http://www.losangelesasianescort.com]Los Angeles Escort[/url] wholeness about the person who has come to terms with his limitations, who [url=http://www.losangelesasianescort.com]Los Angeles Escorts[/url] has been brave enough to let go of his unrealistic dreams and not feel like a failure for doing so. There is a wholeness [url=http://www.losangelesasianescort.com]Los Angeles Asian Escort[/url] about the man or woman who has learned that he or she is [url=http://www.losangelesasianescort.com]Los Angeles Asian Escorts[/url] to go through a tragedy and survive, he or she can lose someone and still I'd like to thank Fudan University's President Yang for his hospitality and his gracious welcome.

If you want to borrow books, you can go to the loan desk, look over the correct call numbers in the card catalog and ask the librarian to take then, out for you. Or you're allowed to enter the stack room to rind books for yourself, you can look up the bound volume or index for the articles relative to the subject, on which you are going to write athesis. If the library doesn't subscribe to the magazine which carries the article you want, you can borrow the magazine from other libraries by means of interlibrary loan service.

PHP is the best for web programming It's open-source, widely used, runs on different Operating Systems and Server platforms, and has built-in support for nearly every database around.I would choose PHP because it is easy to learn.
