Geeks on Friday night

Four geeks. Two male. Two female. Everyone is on computers. We’re IM’ing each other. It’s quite sad. Oh, except Chris just posted about the sadness of this. Which got us all to talk. Heheh.

Hope you’re doing something better with your Friday evening.

  1. Friday nights are great for catching up on all the good blogs. The kids are in bed, spouse playing WoW and Pink Floyd is playing in the background. Good times!

  2. […] Yep, I’m not the only one blogging late on a Friday night. Chris Pirillo and Robet Scoble are blogging away… in the same room though!    Sounds kind of ludicrous, but it’s actually pretty relaxing after a long long week of work.  I remember when Scoble left Microsoft, it was on a Friday or Saturday evening, and the feed reader was going crazy.  Ahh, Web 2.0, how the rumormill fuels you.  This reminds me of 3bubbles, when it first launched.  Late night talks between a bunch of entrepreneurs, enthusiasts, and gasp the almighty VCs.  If you’re up and blogging, bored, or  want to shoot the breeze on the industry email me or im me Bookmark to: […]

  3. I will close my feed reader, I will close my feedreader… Oh well, wishful thinking. Why do I have a feeling a podcast will come out of this? Very interesting week so far in the industry, a lot to talk about.

  5. Sounds like a fine evening.

    Me? I went to the Bond flick. Excellent. (released by a division of Sony, and chock full of Sony product placement. Q, evidently, has been replaced by a marketing droid from Sony.)

  9. I have written a line of code. You forget that I was an editor at Visual Basic Programmer’s Journal and learned more than a little bit about code there. But, I never wrote code professionally.

    Interesting that you are so unconfident in your own skills that you don’t even post your own name.

  11. Ha, even I was online Friday night too (doing Live QnA stuff). I have only written a couple of VB newbie articles for MSDN and a gadget for live.com…and I don’t have enough gizmos yet to truly geek out…but, I wish I was there. My best to Chris/Ponzi/Robert/Maryam. :)

  13. So what is your definition of a geek then? Is it just people on computers? What about the words dork and nerd?

    What do you call someone who was busy creating another blog on Friday night? (Besides answering: “me”)

  15. Corinne: So what is your definition of a geek then?

    Someone who is ultra passionate about something, usually technology related. Extra points if it’s someone who builds things, but that’s not necessarily required.
