Hackety Hack

Speaking of kids, I set the older boy up with Hackety Hack. Why not - I'm working my way through a 'grown up' Ruby tutorial at the same time.

- What's that?

You said you wanted to learn HTML - try this.

- Ok.

Ten minutes later he's further ahead than I am and he's a) enjoying himself* and b) he's learning. Oh and c) he may have found out that computers do more than just toss content at you - you can create with them.

Hacking trumps playing Neopets any day.

*How do I know? I hear clicking followed by sotto voice 'cool's and 'wow's.
