New NASA Website

Just a quick post today... you may be interested in seeing NASA's new website. I'm very impressed by the updates: new look and feel, better navigation, and hints of Web 2.0 with its social bookmarking links and tag cloud. Well done, NASA. It's a huge step up in my humble opinion.

Not Beauty, but Geek

You only get one go at life, right?

So this weekend, I decided to take a chance: to apply to be on the show "Beauty and the Geek." It was easy enough; I simply showed up at the casting call at our University's book store, filled out a form, and enjoyed a nice conversation with my interviewers. Apparently, I caught their attention, since they cut the interview short and offered me a callback for the next day. Well, I showed up at the callback and (I hope) rocked their collective socks off. Yes, I'm a geek, but I'm also, I like to think, a pretty likable guy who would portray us geeks in a good light.

If I make it onto the show, here is my promise: to show to the (TV-watching) world that being smart is not a shameful attribute. If I don't make it onto the show, I'll just keep blogging here. Sure, the audience may not be as big, but I like to think of it as a more intimate conversation.

I'll be sure to keep you posted. Until then, geek on!
