True, and I find your first answer about logo very interesting. I
think ages 9-12, I guess. After they have learned to read and write
their native language, but they don't necessarily have to have learned
a high level of abstract thinking. 

My idea is that programming your own utilities could be taught at
close to the same age as where you begin to learn word processing,
power point,...
