I have previously blogged on Small Basic and only this week snuck it into a session I was doing on Parallel Programming (It is the time of year when you can get away with that sort of stuff!). This is a great way for anyone to learn how to program -  my 80 year old dad is now a huge fan.

A new version (0.2) is just out and can be downloaded from http://smallbasic.com. Details over on the authors blog.
