Re: 2067: "Challengers"

So, did the comic update? Or was it just a reminder to go vote?

Re: Coding for Kids

No problem! For older kids (or adults), Code Combat can be fun too. It requires typing the commands out, though.

Tynker has tablet apps and the iOS one works just fine on my iPad 2 (the 7-year old model, not a newer one).

Re: 2068: "Election Night"

Goodness blades, such needless sarcasm. Yes indeed, paywalls suck, but I'm guessing it's a low one, just to cover hosting and maintenance. If it is indeed public domain, anyone feeling sufficiently charitable could hack up the dosh, and mirror the content free on their own hosting. It's 8 USD/month...

But you can get the Iliad for free on the Gutenberg project.

And it's ridiculous that one of the proponents for longer and longer copyright periods is Disney, whose iconic princess movies are mostly based on public domain stories and legends.

Re: Coding for Kids

I'm not such a fan of Scratch: it's too free-form for me. I prefer something like Tynker where I have clear objectives that get progressively more complex.

I was going to... but you have to pay for content that is in the public domain. :evil:
