Gratification, instant and otherwise

My brother lectures in music performance and technology at SERC in Bangor, Northern Ireland. We had a discussion the other day about the joy of simple programs that get beginners going, and onto the act of creation rather than the faff of configuration.

My brother lectures in music performance and technology at SERC in Bangor, Northern Ireland. We had a discussion the other day about the joy of simple programs that get beginners going, and onto the act of creation rather than the faff of configuration. He was very positive about AudioMulch, an “interative music studio” (though alas it's not Open Source).

Tux painted

I installed Tux Paint at the local youth centre, and it was a joy and very interesting to the young teenagers creating work straight out of the box (see above photo). The attention span seems to last about 5-10 minutes, up to a half hour session before they wandered off to eat crisps or kick a ball somewhere else.

Much to be learned about easy-to-use-tools and feedback...
