It's Just Natural

Our middle school had several youngsters from an area pre-school come to the library so some of our students could read to them.  Our students had written children books as a class project, and this was an opportunity for an audience.

Well, not that the books weren't fantastic, but the computer was naturally more comfortable for this young man.

The computers were off, but he new where the power buttons were, and tried to turn them on.  After a couple of tries, our student played along for a few minutes, then took him to another area of the library.

This reminded me of Clay Shirky's line, "If it ships without a mouse, it ships broken."  This boy is looking for the mouse.
