When I was 8 years old, there was no such thing as the internet, at least in anything like the form in which it exists today. It was a few years later that movies like War Games began to feature smart kids with computers dialing in directly to connect to other computers. Those of us who had computers at that time played games we loaded onto our TRS-80 from a cassette player. Some will remember this classic of that bygone era.
My son is now 8, and decided it was time to start blogging – not because I do it, but because he has friends at school who have blogs. His blog is called “Alex’s Stuff”.
