One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


Embracing my Geek-ness

5 Comments 1384 views

I declared myself a geek waaaaaay back in college. It all stated innocent enough. I didn’t have a computer growing up so I reluctantly took a computer class in college. We learned the basics, all Unix of course as Microsoft hadn’t taken over the world yet. We surfed the web via Lynx and Gopher. That was until Mosaic and soon Netscape took over. I remember using talk to chat with my friends and cursing vi when my professors insisted on using it even though Pico was way easier to use.

I was a horrible programmer. We learned C and Cobol, not fun. It wasn’t until my graduate studies when I was introduced to HTML and Multimedia Development that my true love of technology and inner geek found a home. I fell in love with scripting. I stayed up until 3 AM obsessed with learning Flash 3. I had a CD portfolio as I searched for my first geek job.

Flash Forward 10 years and I’m still at it with my three blogs and NING community. I also vlog and have podcasts on iTunes. Twitter and Facebook feel like home to me and I even ordered my own TwitShirt.

I am a Geek, with a capital "G" and I’m proud to join the Society for Geek Advancement! :)

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.
