Summary
Seth Schroeder discusses how adults can motivate kids to create stuff on a computer rather than just consuming it, and shares the approach that has worked in his family.

Bio

Seth Schroeder is fascinated by computers. As a kid, he felt extra cool when his D&D character generator was "improved" to consistently give him above average stats. As a teen, he used his HP48g calculator to plot the Mandlebrot set to the detriment of his grades. As a young adult, he cut his teeth on the little white C book from Kerninghan&Ritchie. Now he worries more about people.

Strange Loop is a multi-disciplinary conference that aims to bring together the developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology in fields such as emerging languages, alternative databases, concurrency, distributed systems, mobile development, and the web.
