Episode IV


My daughter is almost 3. She can play simple games on the computer, use a mouse, turn up the volume, and print. Yes, print. She has done all of these things in the past week. What can YOUR daughter do?

I love and hate computers. They give me so much grief, due largely to the fact that I understand so little about them. Yet, they are so freaking cool! I mean, who would have thought that one day you could carry the internet around in your pocket or that email would be nearly obsolete?

However, let's keep those computers at an arm's length. We don't want to have any emotional attachment to them after they become self-aware, turn on us, and we are forced to submerge them in boiling molten lava to save the future....

My daughter is probably very important to the resistance...
