Minecraft Makes Kids Smarter

We’ve known it all along, but it is great to hear others say it!

Now, they aren’t really saying that Minecraft makes kids smarter, but it is saying that tomorrow’s entrepreneurs are today’s Minecraft players.

Here are Joe’s points:

1. Kids are using  online video production software and equipment  to make Minecraft videos.  This is a great skill!

2. Minecraft inspires kids to develop amazing niche content delivered on a consistent basis leveraging a subscription component. Little entrepreneurs!

3. To create mods, you have to learn 3D modeling, APIs, integrated development environment and protocol analysis.  Developers from birth!

4. Teaching kids that a winning media business model can be found by werving a small, defined niche with epic content. The smaller the niche, the better.   Niche marketing for kids!
