    Hah, I think I remember that one..

    One of my first was this:
    cats, of course


    It also came with an audio cassette that I used to listen to on a walkman on road trips/looking at the pictures (around the time I was learning to read). Reading in a vehicle triggers severe motion sickness for me, so the audio helped in that regard. I think that, although I was looking at the pictures during extended journeys, perhaps some part of my brain was also processing the words in front of my eyes in tandem with the voice in my ear- the tapes were likely a useful/indirect training aid.
    I had books on tape and did the same thing, and they didn't help me learn to read. You're just smarter than me obviously

    Few years later than I learned how to use a computer, probably at the age of 6 or 7 (at 1st grade).

    Nah, I wouldn't necessarily say how we learn makes us smarter (or less so) than anyone else. There's a lot of variety in that regard. I just guessed that about myself, cuz I tend to be a fairly adept audio-learner. I'm not even certain the tapes helped, but it makes sense in my mind that they'd be a contributor in some way.

    I learned very young. Parents read to me since before I can remember.

    It took me a little while to learn to talk, but once I did I never stopped.

    Unbeknownst to my parents, when they were at work on weekdays, the university students they hired to babysit me decided to entertain themselves by teaching me phonics. I could sound out words before age 2 and read pretty decently by 3 or 4.

    I have no memory of NOT being able to read -- and to be honest, I have no memory of my parents reading to me without me reading as quickly (or quicker) over their shoulder. When they read to me, it always felt more like something we did together. Like a game I was taking part in too.

    This opens us a serious question of when did you learn to use the telephone, the television, the radio and the internet?

    Almost all of us were compelled by State law to go to school to read and write, but why weren't we compelled by State law to learn to use the telephone, the television, the radio and the internet?

    And here we are, prove positive that print is now the content of the computer.

    The intuitive computer is the environment and counter-intuitive print is merely the content of that environment.

    Print had been relegated by the electronic computer.
