What flavor of Geek/Nerd variant do you consider yourself to be? What kind of social happenings best fit into your particular theme of un-conforming?

At first I wanted to be an engineer (as in trains), then I wanted to be an engineer (as in buildings/bridges), then I wanted to be an engineer (as in electronics), but I finally became and engineer (as in software). Along the way I learned to S.C.U.B.A. dive, got married, gained weight, had kids, gained more weight and now I'm trying to lose some of the weight by swimming. So, a meetup in an indoor pool would be great! :-)

Are you a Social Butterfly? Do you play well with others? Do you enjoy meeting new people? If so, would you be willing to help out our Nerd Posse leadership team with regularly recurring activities by occasionally hosting events at public locations?

Yes, my father was a lawyer, labor relations negotiator, and public speaker and it rubbed off. Adding my mothers Italian self-confidence, and strangers are friends I haven't met yet. Words like regularly recurring and occasionally are oxymorons. How often are you speaking about? I need time on my schedule to be a loner, too!

When you finally discovered this group after an arduous quest thru Meetup for a flock of odd ducks who naturally “get” your unique brand of slightly off, did you squeal like a piglet, do a happy dance, then have to adjust your glasses? (BE HONEST!)



I'm an old, fat, married, Italian, passionate, loud, assertive, confident, technophile.

What Michael J. B. is saying about this Meetup Group

I feel at home, much more than with my DNA family!
