...a tribute to becoming a doctor.
Drive-By posting: Miriam
In case anyone is wondering what my daughter is up to these days, here she is!

In other news, today was an ER day from hell, and I'm going to bed before the temptation to complain about how the work I take on to get play money is so hard takes over and keeps me up.

Cute! I don't think I was too much older than this when I started typing programs into the computer. (Honestly, I've been doing that as long as I can remember... I got started around the age of two or three.)

My suggestion: Lua is not a bad way to start, make sure she has an environment that's easy to use, and give her programs on paper that she can type in to the computer to make it do something.
Make them very short and simple. The first few programs should fit on a 3x5 note card, not be more than 3-6 lines long, and introduce a single major programming concept.

When I got started, my Commodore 64 didn't have any cartridges or floppy disks or anything: I had to type a program into the computer to play with it at all.

That was adorable. It reminded me that I got some webcam footage of my niece singing "Old MacDonald Had a Farm" and a couple improvised songs about sparkle shoes and Jesus Christ. Mostly I was just letting her see herself in the camera and showing her that it could be played back, too. She loves any technology that lets her see herself.

Her older brother is more into watching other people play video games (as in he'll play for a little while and then insist that someone else play so he can watch). They're adorable.

This Christmas I start working on their younger brother and maybe draw Dante deeper into the magical world of rolling dice. Muwahaha!
