People think I'm geeky. I guess calling this blog, "GeekyMomma's Blog" perpetuates that perception. The truth is though, I'm one of those people who is geeky on one level (social networking and using apps, services and tools in the classroom for example) but definitely not on a technical level. I don't know (or really want to know) WHY things aren't working, I just want it all to work. Is that wrong?
Ask me where certain wires go or why the DVD isn't playing through the projector and I have no idea. Ask me to hook up your printer and computer to your wireless router and I'll be using the manual. I think if you want to rise to true Geek status, then (at the very least) you have to understand where the yellow and red wires go (the first time you try).
So, when I'm hanging around my UberGeeky friends from EdTech and other PLN members, I need to keep this website handy. Too bad there's no App for that!

Next time I hear "The problem is intermittent, bidirectional comms," I'll still not know what the conversation is about but at least I can respond with, "must be a virtual, replicated parity destabilization issue."
