Writing for GeekDad has been a trip during these past few months. I’m not a journalist in training, but I sometimes play one on Wired.com’s blog. That recently happened when I dialed in to a conference call at the White House to learn about what is happening with President Obama’s new educational initiative. And if you’ve missed my other posts, check out some of the more notable ones below.

It’s been a trip writing for Wired. Challenging too to keep up with the one post a week deadline. But we get to write about what interests us and giving exposure to those things are part of why I’m so thankful for the forum.
