Raising geek generation 2.0 in a new location
I’ve been meaning to mention this for a little while, but a couple of weeks ago or so one of my favourite blogs was rehomed.
GeekDad has been a staple of my reading for a while now as it seems to be about people like me. Not exactly like me, but geeks are all different, right? The blog covers all sorts of stuff, but they include gaming (roleplaying, video, board, whatever), film and TV (mostly fantasy, SF, supers, and the like), books and comics, computer and tech stuff, tinkery-makey stuff, science and engineering, all through the lens of parenting and doing this sort of stuff with your kids. Great material.
They also do a podcast, which I almost never listen to, but seems good if you’re into that sort of thing.
Well, for several years now, GeekDad has been operating as a blog hanging off the website of tech magazine Wired, but recently, for reasons I am not privy to, that relationship ended and so GeekDad has gone to its very own site at geekdad.com. This means that they no longer have the might of Wired behind them, but presumably it means they can control their own destiny a little more.
So, go on, give them a look, stick them into your feed aggregator, or whatever floats your boat. They’re doing a great job.
