live long & prosper

It is an exciting time to be a nerd.

John Hodgman at the Radio & TV Correspondents' Dinner.

In which John Hodgman quizzes President Barack Obama on his nerd credentials.

(This happened a little while back, but I've been busy and am just now catching up. It's worth sharing.)

Hi, Dayna!

It's Robert, former Creative Manager at a greater-Chicago-area-based retail catalog company that will go nameless.

Just stopping in to say hello. I drop by the blog periodically - it's a great read - and saw the Hodgman entry. I'd seen it before, it's a great speech. Certainly confirmed my own nerd cred when I found I could answer all three Dune-related queries Hodgman posed.

It's been hot as hell down in Austin where the deer and the antelope play and nary is heard a discouraging word because I have to spend almost all of my time buried in research articles in hopes of someday tacking Ph.D. on to the end of my name.

I saw that you were in town for SXSW too late, so next time you're in Austin it would be great to catch up and have a beer.

Hope you and yours are well. Safe travels.

Hey Robert -- so glad you dropped a note! Send me an email, would ya, if you still have the gmail address -- the last time I tried the one I had for you it was all busted up.

Love Austin -- what a great place to land. Talk to you soon, I hope.

p.s. Not at all surprised about the Dune thing. ;)
