John Nack's Layer 2 Commentary

For Those Who
Think Young

Ah, speaking of the early mind, Khoi goes early to the adorability well, bringing his brood to bear; guile, indeed. But be careful, man: as you know, with a toddler, every screen is "multi-touch."

Indeed our wee ones will, like so many kids, start young. Remember sketching as a kid? I vividly recall the frustration of trying to animate via a stack of 3x5" cards. What can a kid do now with just a $60 drawing tablet and any computer? What about with an iPad? And what experiences that we took for granted (charcoal on the side of your hand?) might they never know?

How will Nicholas respond? I have my fingers crossed that we'll see the annotated weights and measures of the "Hang In There!" kitten--raising the aww shucks factor. (Go cute or go home.) But perhaps he has something quite different in mind.
