  • Blog Post: Point Them in a Direction and Get Out of the Way

    I’ve heard Bill Gates talk a number of times about how influential his middle school experiences with computers were in his life.

  • Blog Post: Zune HD as a programming/teaching platform?

    The idea of games that use accelerometers strikes me as particularly interesting an several levels. The most obvious is for creating games of course.
