Marshmallow Run: Girl Scouts San Diego + Design Code Build

MacStories’ John Vorhees on a Kickstarter project to develop a programming/design curriculum for girls (well, everyone, really):

…the reward that’s most interesting is a programming starter pack for backers who pledge just $25. The starter pack includes character sprites and other game elements for building Marshmallow Run in Scratch.

Em and I spent part of last year following a Pixelnest Studio tutorial to build a simple shmup in Unity. I’m hopeful Marshmallow Run gets fully backed, because I’d love to try out the starter pack with Em.

The State of iBooks in Early 2017

Michael E. Cohen with a good post on iBooks: The State of iBooks in Early 2017. I still miss dearly-departed Readmill, but I’ve settled in ok with iBooks in terms of making my epub books available across all my devices.

Occasionally, iBooks forgets to bookmark my current place in a book so it opens to the wrong page on another device.
