This article is fascinating.

In completely unrelated news, Robin still loves his ClickStart, and I think the little games are actually helping him learn his alphabet: lately he likes to stop and point out letters he sees on the street, like signs in shop windows and stuff: he’ll wait for us to name the letter, and then point to another one, until we have identified all the letters on the sign. It makes walks a lot longer, but it’s an encouraging thing to see.

I’ve also concluded that playing on the ClickStart doesn’t have a negative effect on Robin’s behavior, so long as he also gets to spend at least an hour running around at the park. I really like the ClickStart system: it feels like the closest we can get right now to the computer out of The Diamond Age.
