Pax East Starts Friday

Friday night, I will be in the Wyvern Theatre at Pax East speaking on Bringing up the Next Generation of Geeks. If you are attending Pax East, please stop by at 7:00 and pretend to be interested. (We’ll pretend to be interesting.)

How young is too young for The Hobbit? What should my kids’ first LEGO set be? How can I control my disgust if my child tells me he likes Jar Jar and the Ewoks? When should I buy my kids their first non-six-sided dice? These questions and many more will be discussed by writers for’s GeekDad blog and other geek parents. Come share your stories and advice for how to make sure our kids grow up to be geeks like us! Don’t have kids? Show up and find out what may be in store for you if you ever do!

I’m part of a panel with some fellow writers for Wired’s GeekDad.

Panelists Include: Matt Blum [Assistant Editor], Dave Banks, Natania Barron, John Booth, Doug Cornelius [that’s me], Michael Harrison, and Corrina Lawson [Who is not going to arrive in time for the panel].
