Random Cool Stuff: ABC’s for Baby Gamers!

Offbeat

How young is too young to start indoctrinating your children in the ways of the gamer? NEVER too young! So instead of reading ‘Chicka Chicka ABC’ or ‘Goodnight Moon’ to your toddler, tuck them in with the ‘Gamer’s Alphabet’!

Anyway, ElJeffe at the Penny-Arcade forums talked about his book and how he created it:

Okay, here’s the Gamer’s Alphabet. First, this is roughly how I made it. Instead of using adhesive paper, I used plain, sturdy printer paper and spray-on glue, because I couldn’t find any adhesive paper that didn’t suck for printing. Also, the instructions make it sound like you should put the laminating sheets on after you make the book, which would be retarded. I stuck them on the pages before I affixed them to the cardboard, and which meant I only had to trim once.

The thread at Penny-Arcade has the entire book shot one page at a time. Check it out!

Note: This is an ‘oldie-but-goodie’ – I recalled seeing it a few years back … and I was correct: the post was from 2007 and was re-found today and linked on Buzzfeed for some reason.

I have loved technology for as long as I can remember - and have been a computer gamer since the PDP-10! Mobile Technology has played a major role in my life - I have used an electronic companion since the HP95LX more than 20 years ago, and have been a 'Laptop First' person since my Compaq LTE Lite 3/20 and Powerbook 170 back in 1991! As an avid gamer and gadget-junkie I was constantly asked for my opinions on new technology, which led to writing small blurbs ... and eventually becoming a reviewer many years ago. My family is my biggest priority in life, and they alternate between loving and tolerating my gaming and gadget hobbies ... but ultimately benefits from the addition of technology to our lives!
