I’ve read the studies and listened to the arguments and reached an interesting conclusion: None of that matters. This is one of those times when the problems are self-evident and so are the solutions. All the debate is purely academic, so let’s leave that to the economists and get down to business.
Fifteen minutes later, Malda received an e-mail reply. The subject read “Yes.” The message was “Dork. You made me cry. :)”
At the end of Surfwise, the entire Paskowitz family – some of whom had been estranged from their parents and siblings – comes together in a reunion that had to be healing for all of them. But Doc Paskowitz (and his fictional counterparts in books like Paul Theroux’s The Mosquito Coast and Barbara Kingsolver’s The Poisonwood Bible) should give all Bad Dads a moment’s pause.
“Curation is one of the most important things that players deserve these days,” says Tracy Fullerton, director of USC Games. “There’s a tremendous amount of content available for people to find, and yet it’s very difficult to find.

It is best to plan out the book’s pages, format, and layout ahead of time, because it is impossible to rearrange pages in any logical fashion. You have to copy and paste content or reinsert images. You can change type size for each separate text box, but the interface doesn’t use point size; there is a slider that goes from small to large. This makes it very hard to make all the text size consistent in the book. They seemed to try to get around this by having a Match button, which matches type size to the other text boxes. But any time you go back into the text size changing screen, it undoes whatever size you chose last time. You can resize images and text boxes easily, but it is obvious that this interface is for inserting elements and not so much for editing them or rearranging items in creative ways. The book’s cover can also be edited. You can add a title and author, and even a background color and/or image.
