They're not "short adults"
Great post on introducing kids to programming that reminds us to not treat kids like "short adults" and gives a great set of suggestions of ways to introduce a kid, from html to scratch to RUR-PLE. I love that Ned starts by talking about finding out what the kid is interested in. Too many folks forget this part when trying to introduce a new person to programming - wiift (what's in it for them).
