Some of you may know my husband John as the fish keeper in the family, or the guy who got his finger sewn up, or the person who responds to your email if you have a question about a purchase in the Mochimochi Shop. He’s also a huge geek.
John is the genuine article— he started teaching the math classes in high school when they ran out of advanced classes for him to take, he wrote his senior thesis in college about Final Fantasy (and narratology), and he’s currently fixing up his prized Star Trek: The Next Generation pinball machine.
So when John starts up a website devoted to things geek, it’s kind of like a reassurance that all is right in the world.
Geek Out New York is a blog devoted to geek culture, and New York-based geekdom in particular. John thought it would be fun to write a blog with in-depth posts, of both the insightful and nonsense variety, instead of just links to the latest gadgets. Gadgets do make appearances though, along with current geek news, history, and geek-specific event listings. I don’t always get the inside jokes and references, but reading it makes me feel just a little bit like an insider.
So if you or someone you love is a geek, please check it out.
