"But honey, I never go anywhere anymore": How to make the transition from "free" geek, to comitted "Other" and/or Parent with as little pain as possible


You’ve all been there; your partner just doesn’t “get” your obsession with the web, technology, geek culture… whatever, none of it! Further, any time and/or attention paid to your passion is a colossal “waste of time” in their eyes, and an affront to your family unit. Unless you’re shacking-up with member of the opposite sex (or same sex for that matter, this is Oregon after all!) who is down with their inner-geek, you’ve probably felt the seemingly insurmountable pressure (and lack of intimate activity) associated with balancing the geeky lifestyle with the demands of the home front.

Fortunately, I’ve taken the tumult and guesswork out of facing that challenge. Learn how to keep up that schedule of un-conferences and “excuses-for-drinking-with-other-geeks” called “events” or “professional development”. Follow me as I explore the myriad strategies, solution and stories that will keep you happily on track in both your home and you life as a nascent social media maven.

Blah Blah Blah… I’m a nerd and proud of it. Always have been, always will be. I while away the hours at Earth Class Mail, trying my best to keep my sanity.
