It’s funny how one thing can lead to another, on the net.
About a month ago, I spotted an interesting tweet that someone I follow had ‘retweeted’. I followed the tweet back to the writer, to read more of what they had to say. They happened to be a writer for Wired UK, the anglo offshoot of the famous US magazine. And they’d mentioned something called a ‘GeekDad’ blog, which was looking for contributors.
I sent a few emails, wrote some demo posts, and recently had my first GeekDad post published.
Then last week, a blogger on the Wired U.S. site linked to the post. But that’s not where the story ends. Early this week, I was contacted by a producer for the Tom Dunne show – a morning talkback show heard across Ireland on Newstalk 106-108FM. They’d read my post, and wanted me to come onair to chat about it.
If you’d like to hear me talking ‘old school cassettes’ and other retro things, I should be on Friday morning (25th March) at 10.30am, Dublin time. Non-Irish readers: You’ll be able to stream the audio live. (If it’s ‘in the middle of the night’ – in your timezone – I’ll upload an archive audio link, afterwards.)
