"When this article came out there were 12 in my open-plan office and it worked fine. Recently I've been seeking quiet by bringing my laptop to an unoccupied part of the office floor. Headcount is 16 now. Your 15-person cutoff matches my experience." - Bruce Lewis

Are there online communities for young writers? My 13yo would benefit from being part of such a community.
I'd start with NaNoWriMo sites. I'll bet there's a separate board just for youth. - Spidra Webster
NaNo has a whole section for kids, I think they should have resources there too. Writing.com is a very open community (site is kind of confusing) but really customizable to what you want to see. - Heather
Fictionpress.com is good if she wants to post stuff and get feedback. I've worked with 13y.o.'s on there. - Jessie
there's some options listed here http://alpha.spellcaster.org/links... and here http://www.davidbarrkirtley.com/teenwri... - though I don't know how often links on that second one are updated. - ellbeecee
though from that second, http://www.teenink.com looks good, from a quick look over it - ellbeecee

That's my weekly total, not my daily average. I'm going to see if someone already filed a bug. - Bruce Lewis
Even after being abandoned for a week while I went on vacation, my Fitbit still tells me it loves me.

Fitbit has open plan seating. In the spacious Boston office it's easy to find quiet, but 90% of the time we stay where everyone else is.

Stephen Mack, do you participate in these hackathons? - Bruce Lewis
I think Jimminy would be interested in this. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

My 7-year-old lost her Fitbit Zip in the snow for a few days. - https://plus.google.com/u...
My 7-year-old lost her Fitbit Zip in the snow for a few days.
They're sending a new one. I'm going to make her write a thank-you note to reinforce that most companies won't just replace what you bought if you don't take care of it. Interestingly, I got an email today saying this thing's battery is running low. It's still syncing! I walked with it a little. It registered steps and uploaded them. - Bruce Lewis from Bookmarklet
Not your fault, but this is one reason why I won't go back to fitbit. How many folks in here have lost theirs and been sent another one while mine was breaking apart, within the warranty period (close to the end, but still within in it) and I got a "here's a code for 50% off a One". It just rubs me the wrong way and still does, almost a year out. (And I'm far less cranky about them replacing a 7 year old's who lost it in the snow than some of the other stories I've seen. ;) ) - ellbeecee
Sorry L.B. It sounds like someone in customer service didn't handle your case right. I don't speak for Fitbit and I don't work in customer service, but I might be able to straighten things out if you DM me with details -- especially if you still have a case number. - Bruce Lewis
It's ok - I've found happiness with my Jawbone Up, and like some of the features it has better, so there's a silver lining - it's not worth digging through my email for the exchange again. It's just always a hint of cranky for me toward them now. I am glad that they're replacing your daughter's AND that you're having her write that thank you note. That's good on both sides - and thank you for the offer. - ellbeecee
For my 7yo the killer feature is that now she has a game where she can meaningfully compete with her older siblings. I like the way it has given her lots more practice reading 4-digit numbers than she would normally have. She used to say "hundred" where she should say "thousand" and vice versa. - Bruce Lewis
