Computer programming for kids
Pre-parent hacker Brian (baby due in July) wanted to share something with the "other geek parents out there":
I am a computer programmer by trade, and have often thought about how daunting it might be to teach my children “what daddy does." http://www.kidsprogramminglanguage.com/ has a programming environment designed specifically for kids that is packed with tons of tutorials and samples that would make it easy for even the non-programmer parent or teacher to get kids interested in computer programming. The interface is super easy to use, and in two clicks a child can play a game of pong before looking under the hood.
