Technology for Toddlers?
July 31st 2004, 06:53 CEST by Jibble

Kids learn a lot through manipulation of our three-dimensional world.  If you've ever sat down for a four-hour session of repetitive video gaming, you know what I'm getting at here.  Are kids really learning anything from all of those kid-oriented web sites, or are they just learning how to jump through the right hoop and then doing it over and over without additional challenge?  Do you think that the family discussed in the article is a typical example, or an exception to the norm?

I'll buy one of those rabbits on my way to the 'Funny Walks Society' meeting later tonight.

The hand is going to get you!

My office has an MLS hack that looks like a soccer ball, a can of Spider-Main Real Web Fluid, 6 different mugs from tech companies that I got back in the day, two stacks of audio and mp3 CDs, 7 tins of varying mints, a bunch of old Star Wars action figures, a 10" Lara Croft action figure (with real underwear!), three MacFarlane Matrix figures, the requisite mini-basketball hoop (in Tigger colors - a present from my kids), a framed painting done by my oldest daughter, some Star Wars micromachines (the X-Wing and TIE), a medical rescue HumVee Hot Wheels, 3 broken Palms/Handsprings, 1 working Palm III (don't ask), two printers, two unused watches still in the boxes, a Matrix Revolution poster I stole from a dumpster behind Best Buy, my webcam, many pictures of wife and kids, 4 different pencil/pen holders, all full, a Senor Mysterioso glow-in-the-dark figure, a generic "Action Figure" that looks a bit like GI Joe, and about 50 different PA, PvP, UF, Red Meat, The Onion, and SinFest comics.  Oh, and a Catbert plush that someone gave to me and which has googly eyes drawn on it.  I still have about 20 square feet of desk space for my mouse.  No whiteboard; those are evil.

Watch out for cocks, I had an unpleasent experience with that recently. -gaggle

My desk is buried in paper.  So's my desk at home.

My computer desktop is utterly tidy, however.

Unprovoked abuse, in comic form.

Actually, I have to confess, I didn't actually steal the Matrix poster from a dumpster.  My friend Jerry who works there rescued it from the dumpster for me.  But he said he'd be in BIG TROUBLE if he got caught.

My desk is covered in pantone guides, vinyl samples and scraps of paper that I clear off every three months.  I've never attempted to make it more homey with toys, although I do have a picture of my daughter.

Other than the usual bits of paper and CDs and crap, I've only got a plant, a small rubber cow with a couple of buzzard feathers stuck in it, a 10 franc coin, a half-penny, a rubber band ball and the motor from a hard drive on my desk.  I've never really seen the point of all the assorted geek toys people seem to collect, but each to their own.

How much can you buy with a half penny?  Are they as worthless as an American penny?

Absolutely nothing, they were removed from circulation yonks ago.  And since the Euro came out the 10 franc coin is worth nothing as well.  Two coins to rub together and I'm still poor... there's a lesson there somewhere.

So has any buzz been generated about UAC? Huh? Huh?

I haven't really started whoring it anywhere yet, so I doubt there's any buzz.

We should probably look into spam marketing and popup ads.

I'm going to whore the shit out of it when my site is completely up, and when you finish the UAC site, because I love you all.

I can whore UAC for 40k pageviews.

But it needs more content first!

Among other things, I have a horse's skull which is wearing a baseball cap.  It was there when I arrived, and it will remain when I leave.

Wow, did the Dutchy just make a relatively funny and witty joke?

What's going on here?

Even a Dutch cock is funny twice a day.

This is true.  The way they walk around with those wooden shoes on and crow at the sun is hysterical.

Even "Breeders club" sounds like an euphemism. Whoever came up with the poultry dictionary way back when must've been horny as all hell.

The association members are all too busy making the sex to put up a decent website.
