How to use this site


As Captain Obvious, I will state that this site is in blog format.  A couple of times a week, I’ll add posts related to professional development for geeks.  In addition, I’ll occasionally post other geek-related information.  You’ll see some original concepts and comments all shared in my informal writing style.  You’ll also see discussion of ideas from published writers and practitioners.  I will always cite my sources when I use them – professional integrity and all.  In those cases, I’ll frequently refer you to another site or a book where you can get more information. 

The value that I provide is that I will distill the information down into a manageable size and translate it specifically for geek behavior.  There are a lot of good resources available but they can be hard to find if professional development is not your field.  I’ll also try to steer you past the pseudo-science and fads that are so popular in this area.  We’ll stick with proven (usually scientifically proven) techniques.

You can opt to read each post sequentially as they are published.  You can also search the site for a topic or look in the archived categories.  Come regularly or only when you are seeking an answer to a problem.

BTW – I can hear some of you scoffing about the technical quality of the site.  I readily confess that I am not a technical geek.  I’m using a simple WordPress blogging site.  I still struggle with adding widgets and changing formatting.  I can’t promise glamorous or cutting edge technology.  I can promise a functional site.  More importantly, I’ll vouch for the sound research and experienced-based content.

Since you are all geeks as well, I’ll write as if speaking to my well-educated friends.  I’ll avoid jargon (mostly) but I won’t dumb down the messages.  You are smart enough to follow along, but you must make a choice about whether or not to listen.
