—Yesterday was “Take Your Child to Work Day” at my company. I was lucky enough to be involved, even if O is too young to partake just yet. The kids had a blast hanging out at an interactive agency complete with Wii games projected on a big screen, tons of computers with Internet access, mass snacks, and more.
But what I thought was really cool is this fun application that one of my coworkers Tim created for a young man who was interested in Flash. Tim said the boy was the creative visionary behind the project, while Tim acted as the production artist. I think it’s just awesome. Of course, a great headline and a few lines of copy would have made it even awesomer.
