Yep. I am up to page 11 :-)
I just got that and Mark Guzdial's two squeak books. We coached Lego
robotic teams in the past and are thinking of doing a class or two for

we can put some software on a web page and the kids can collaborate
has lots of potential.
Thanks for the pointer! I look forward to reading your book.
