This type of quick documentation about programming languages is what people need. Programmers that want to learn a new language just want to understand the basics without the need to reading endless pages of documentation. The best approach is some examples well explained.

    encouragement of curiosity.

I think is the most important element of learning. The curiosity, and the creativity are fundamentals. This remember me the TED Talk of Ken Robinson, "How schools kill creativity". It's the most viewed video of TED, and it's brilliant.

    It turns out, the light-sensitive chip inside the Game Boy Camera (it’s called a Mitsubishi M64282FP chip) is sensitive to infrared light.

Well, this guy understand photography a bit.

My opinion about this is: if you can't give a positive feedback about something, don't give a feedback. Have your post ignored by the community could be worse than receive downvotes. And if you only allow upvotes you only can share your positive feelings in the voting system.

Yeah, I read 2 or 3 books on Kindle for Android, but my biggest problem in reading more books, digital or solid, is the huge amount of distraction a tablet/smartphone provides.

This is in Petropolis, Rio de Janeiro, in a nature reserve.

Yes, this is a science theme park. Many practical experiments can be done here.
