Other Voices, Other Blogs: Wired’s GeekDad

As a father of a teen- and soon-to-be-teen geek, I take my responsibility as a nurturing force in their lives serious.  I want my kids to have fun and learn, so visiting Wired.com’s GeekDad blog is a daily ritual of what’s new in geek culture.  The blog covers obligatory geek-cultural touchstones like comics, movies, music, conventions, and electronic and non-electronic gaming. They also do a good job covering DIY projects for kids and teens.  Today’s article on adding transistors to the Arduino to drive bigger events like controlling a strobe light is a great example. Be warned, GeekDad contributors add 4-6 articles a day, so it’s quite addictive!
