Up to Scratch

Took a break from my seaside investigations to download Scratch. Have to say I am very impressed!

Tonight I am hoping to introduce my 9 year old son to it and see how it flies with its intended audience.  It’s interface is very clean and very intuitive and takes EToys to the next level.  Within about an hour of investigating last night I was able to write a game where my cat had to dodge giant raindrops to avoid being washed away.  This stuff is very simple and very cool.

It’s also great to see another smalltalk product out there that looks good and plays good and may just catch the imagination of the next generation of software developers.

Alan Kay talked of Inventing the Future – the future is our kids and they may be inventing with Scratch and Smalltalk.
