I figured it might be nice to introduce ourselves and talk a little about some of the stuff we work on.
I'm Matt. I'm pretty new to JP, and I'm a giant nerd. Computers and technology are at the heart of everything I do, and magically, I get paid for some of them.
Away from all that, I have a cool small business of my own, publishing small books and making fun little records with some of my friends and worry about the lack of the E line.
Hey Matt, thanks for the great intro. You've done some very cool and important work.
I'm also consider myself a geek but don't think I really deserve to be called one.
I first got my geek on in the early 2000's when I was an ACT! Certified Contact Management consultant. That counts right?
In 2006, I built my first blog when I worked a BPD as a community organizer. In 2007/2008 with help of Jon Rivers, customized this Ning network to make this site what it is today. For work, I'm a community engagement strategist. I recently blogged about the story of my career on JosephPorcelli.com.
I really like what you've done here with N4N. I only found out about it a few days ago, but I'm already getting people I know in the neighborhood to sign up.
It's good that you make yourself find time to blog. I seem to spend less and less time doing that lately :(
Hi folks --
I can’t say I’m really a geek (yet) though much of geekdom fascinates me. I’ve only very recently become interested in programming languages and website development. Right now I’m doing some small-ish freelance work (Drupal websites), and also working with a graphic designer who’s from the print era and needs help doing web stuff.
One geeky thing I seem to enjoy is reading programming books, perhaps because I never took a real computer science class in college. I’d love to have some recommendations. If anyone would like to borrow from my nascent library, I wrote a little web app to list my books here: http://bookdir.heroku.com/users/mjhoy
Joseph -- thanks for setting this site up! I’ve only just joined, but it looks to be quite a good resource.
