Image: Geeks are sexy
A while ago I blogged about the difference between a geek and a nerd. I also blogged about the advantages of having a dual screen setup. Today I’ll offer you some choices to allow you to take advantage of the world of geeks. Gabbing geek offers a lot of current information about comic book heroes, films and other things of geek interest. It also has a very live podcast which you might like to listen to in your dead times where you are looking for something good to do. buckeyeinteractive goes through 10 fun and tech savvy sites which are certainly good value and Geeks are Sexy brings you current and up to date geek news. If you are a Terry Pratchett fan Boingboing, another really good geek site brings you an image of how to read Discworld.
My favourite discovery is from the buckeyeinteactive site and it’s a site called carbonmade. I haven’t linked you to the home page because it makes the site look a bit kiddie and it is not at all like that. You can use the site to build a visual e-portfolio/blog where you can showcase your images to great effect. This is something which would be very useful to students since they would be able to easily demonstrate growth and development as visual learners. The site has a really lovely gallery of the sorts of things people do with and it’s conveniently divided into subheadings. If you are at all visually oriented, it is well worth a look. There are some very impressive sites made with carbonmade.
