The wife and I are expecting our first geekling to hatch sometime around Valentine’s Day. I’m really excited to become a father, and I don’t share any of the worries that others have expressed about raising a geek. In fact, I think I might encourage the little one to be a geek – let me explain:
To me, a “geek” is someone who is so passionate about something that they know intimate details and facts that most people wouldn’t bother learning. I’m a geek about many, many things, and I don’t see it as a bad thing. If you’re going to do something, give it your all, right? If our geekling expresses desire in anything, I’d be remiss to not encourage them, right?
