The Scratch Online Community is a website (Figure 1) that allows kids from around the world to share their own interactive media. In less than two years, more than 50,000 people have uploaded close to 350,00 Scratch projects ranging from video games to animated stories to science simulations to dance projects. Continuous iterations in the design and moderation of the site have been guided by observations of the participation patterns that have emerged in the community around issues such as remixing, moral judgment and group formation. The Scratch website hopes to be an example of how web technologies can foster young people's involvement in the participatory culture to develop 21st century skills
