Penny Arcade dude’s son is seven:
> He is building and solving problems in ways that frankly I think are far beyond his years but maybe that’s just because I’m his Dad. Either way I think the “game” has been incredibly good for him. He’s learned spelling by making his own signs, some pretty complex math from using his furnace and smelting.
> His fascination with Minecraft has lead him to ask me the other day if there was “something you could look at that would show you how to make things in minecraft.”
There is hope for the future! It’s all blocky, though.
