You've never seen the *EVIL* Mr. Nagey when that happens! Bruhahaha! ;)

Seriously, though, Rev is such a rich environment that, for a 12-14 
year-old, it's easier to begin with existing projects. For the 
old-timers, that was one of the cool things about the Home Stack when 
HC first came out. You could modify it and learn programming without 
having to sketch out the entire project in advance. I wonder how HC 
would have been received if there hadn't been the Home Stack and the 
handful of example stacks. I remember just about everyone starting 
there then writing their own address book and Finder replacement as 
their first 'real' projects. ;)
