Unplugged? Why in Gods name would I do that? My fondest memory's of childhood involved tech. Now my son is growing up in an era where you can not only develop your own tech very easily, you can carry the development platform around in your pocket.
My dad taught me to solder when I was 8, we made binary clocks and other projects together. I'm planning on teaching my kid to develop his own software, or any other tech projects he's interested in.
Is not what you remember about the holidays, it's how you feel about those memories
