Ok, I really want a Tasslehof/Iron man drawing or something. And, I love that answer +Aaron Wood. (it makes sense that you always plus my Tas answers. He really sneaks into my plan to answer Raistlin whenever possible.....)

And, I love being mentioned in the podcast with Kender in the title.

Geek Question of the Day: Another Monday, another title twister in the form of; If you took the titles of the last book you read and merged it with the title of the last movie you saw, what would the resulting story be called and what would it be about? Good luck out there. =) #gqotd

If you put Matthew McConaughey and Matt Damon on it, will the entire universe go looking for it?

Geek Question of the Day: This one is something that came up on last week's podcast and was suggested by +Paul Duggan; What are your favorite web comics (past and present) and which ones would you recommend to your fellow geeks? Obviously this is a broad category but anything goes. #gqotd

You guys have got to look 1/0 up.
http://www.undefined.net/1/0/?strip=1
So good it kinda defies description. Unfortunately it ends at 1000 strips so apart from that, I've got to say The Order of the Stick.
http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0001.html
The Order of the Stick is about a group of adventures in a tabletop roleplaying game. 
Also Freefall!

Geek Question of the Day: A hero or villain's journey generally has many ups and downs, but tonight I'd like to focus on their triumphs as I ask you; *What are your favorite fictional 'moments of victory' and why do they stand out for you? From the small but important successes to the epic world-shaking ones. Good or evil doesn't really matter for this one and pretty much any source is good! #gqotd

Geek Question of the Day: With Google adding another two messaging platforms to an already insanely crowded universe of services, I thought it might be interesting to ask you; What messaging systems/apps do you most use to keep in touch with friends, family & coworkers? Old school or new, pretty much any system works! #gqotd

Geek Question of the Day: You've all had a month to read your way to a safe place, so I'm sure you'll all be fine as I once again ask you; If you found yourself transported into the last scene you read in a book, where would you be and what are your chances of survival? As always, anything non-textbook qualifies! #gqotd

+Christina Talbott-Clark ditto for me as well plus she finally finished the series so I am rereading. Safely out of earthquake danger but heading off to war, so survival still dicey... ;-)

Geek Question of the Day: I think most of us have programs we absolutely need on our computers. With that in mind, tonight's question is; What software do you always need to have installed on your computer and why? Obviously duplicates are totally fine on this one and we're mostly focusing on regular laptops/desktops in this case! #gqotd

Introduction

Digital MacGyver for hire, Co-Owner of Boston TechCollective, Maker of a mean guacamole.

Here on G+ I'm best known for three things;

1. My "Geek Question of the Day" which gets posted every night when I get home from work so feel free to check them out. Sometimes there is a theme, often it's just something random, but the community that has sprung up around them is nothing short of amazing! Just search for #gqotd if you're curious or want to jump into the fray!

2. My "Geekscape of the Day" which is generally some wonderful piece of artwork that I've found on sites like DeviantArt. I always include links and call out the artists who created them! My general rule is that it has to be a window into another universe. A snapshot in time and an inspiration for folks to come up with stories. Search for the #gsotd hashtag to see what I mean!

3. My new "Geek Questioner Podcast" with Aalia Khan Yousafzai. The idea is that we go over all of the questions from the previous week and then interview one of you, someone from this wonderful community. See the link below!

WHY CAN'T I COMMENT ON YOUR POSTS?!?!?!: I recently have been forced to changed who can comment on my posts. This is due to the automated bots, spammers, and trolls that have been flooding me lately. I hate having to do this but it's my only option for sanity. If you would like to comment just tag me into a post and I'll try to circle you!

Away From G+:

I'm a technologist & teacher. My passion is making sense of all of the amazing tech that's out there, assessing what practical use it may have and developing custom plans for non-geeks. I like to think of what I do as being a technology therapist, sorting out the arguments between humans and their gadgets in a peaceful way.

I've been roaming the countryside since 2004, helping people from all walks of life with their technology needs. PC, Mac, Mobile, Social, Home Theater and pretty much every other tech buzz-word imaginable. At this point I can safely say that if it runs on electricity and can connect to the internet I've probably helped someone out with at least one of them.

Lately I've been giving talks to large groups about all manner of technology. Everything from cloud computing to cyberbullying and smartphones. If you're looking for someone who loves to break things down into English for people, I'm your geek...

Bragging rights
I've been running the Geek Question of the Day since 2011!
