I’m a nerd. Been one all my life. When I was a kid, I was a guitar nerd. As a young man, I was a woodworking nerd. Then I became an electronics nerd. Then a software nerd. Then a writing nerd. I don’t create electronic doo-dads anymore, but I’m proud to still be active in the remainder of my nerd interests. My heroes are nerds like Roy Underhill, Leo Kottke, Paul Sellers, and Adam Savage. Like fine wines, as nerds age, they just get more nerdy. Porn stars – not hardly.
I pity the poor bastard who watches television. Except for the guy who only watches Roy, on PBS. He’s got his head on straight.
