Comment Lightbot (Score 1) 315

Take a look at Lightbot. It's an educational game where you program a robot to turn on lights on the board. It's very nice. My 4 year old daughter loves it and is able to solve simpler levels by herself. I introduce more complex ideas (procedures, loops) when we have some time to play together. It reminds me a bit of LOGO and turtle graphics - that's how I got started and I thinkg turtle graphics in one of modern editions is also one of good first steps.

Comment How can I upgrade? (Score 1) 437

If upgrading Android would take something like apt-get full-upgrade from the device or at worst booting some ISO on my PC with the device connected, I'd do it. But devices are locked, I can't upgrade my phone above 4.1 and drivers that would allow me to install bootleg distros are unavailable in source code form. So yeah, I'm sticking with 4.1 as long as my phone works and its battery still keeps me online for 5-6 days.

Preservation of local languages and introduction of a global one are not exclusive goals. All it takes is the world to agree to teach everyone a second language so that in one or two generations every person in the world had TWO native languages - a local and the global one. But if we could agree on things like that we wouldn't be afraid of wars nor global warming.
