Description Doing work for a research company that was trying to put together cognitive learning games for kids makes one think of many different societies and cultures and how they would approach teaching children various skills and interests. I tend to go in some very bizarre cultures,...robots teaching spuds and plants of many eyes??? Ok, many a meeting encourages outlandish thoughts that drift down through my hands and end up on paper somehow. That's all I know.
