A Field Guide to A/V Geeks

The Generalissimo provides a sort of Field Guide to A/V Geeks, describing the telltale field marks, and then helping to identify a few of them in the blogosphere. I'm hoping he'll include range maps in a future post, highlighting migratory paths and breeding territory.

I became an A/V Geek the moment I was handed my first tape recorder. I immediately became a roving reporter, shoving a microphone in the faces of all my friends and creating mock news broadcasts. Then, seizing control of the family 8mm movie camera, I created little stop-motion animated films featuring puppets, Fisher-Price toys, and Legos. After a brief flirtation with computers in high school, I decided upon broadcasting as a major. I spent exactly two years in the business post-college, and while working with all the high-tech stuff was fun, dealing with the egos of news reporters was often a chore.

Now, aside from editing a bit of audio for my employer now and then (which is also a chore) I "get my geek on" by turning old LPs into new CDs. I suppose blogging brings out the A/V geek a bit, too. If I ever get my own web domain (read: if my wife ever lets me incur the expense), expect this blog to become a cornucopia of sights and sounds.

(There must be some way for me to get pictures up here at least. All the cool kids do it.)

Drew, is the answer. No account needed, just upload an image and it gives you a selection of html code to paste into your blog entry. It's what I use for all my graphics!

Shiny! Thanks. Soon this blog will be nothing but pictures of Lid. (Which is still better than pictures of cats, right?)

Drew, another option is the Hello! Blogger Bot.
