Thank you, this is very helpful.  I have been wanting to try and figure out
how to use Lively in the same way I use Etoys with kids, but haven't
had/made the time to learn the things I need to know.  This definitely
helps reduce the learning time.

One thing I was trying to do was to perform some basic "turtle" commads
like moveBy, when I opened the inspector and tried *this.moveBy(10) * it
always moved to 0,0 no matter what number I entered.  I then say the cheat
sheet said* moveBy(point)  *so I tried moveBy(100,10) and still the same

It would be great if at some point the cheatsheet had links for each
"cheat" to a tutorial/example page.

P.S. At some point it would be great if there were scripting tiles :)

To some of us, writing computer programs is a fascinating game. A program
is a building of thought. It is costless to build, weightless, growing
easily under our typing hands. If we get carried away, its size and
complexity will grow out of control, confusing even the one who created it.
This is the main problem of programming. It is why so much of today's
software tends to crash, fail, screw up.

When a program works, it is beautiful. The art of programming is the skill
of controlling complexity. The great program is subdued, made simple in its
