Am I a nerd too?

PeterMe comments that nerds are the same the world over.

I read this and thought “yeah, OK, fairly normal day” (well, I don’t go out in Tokyo for nabe for dinner, but you get the idea).

I sit in front of a computer most of the day doing Intranet design (right now), I come home and study (Masters in Internet Communication – done online), I tutor HCI every week, I spend a lot of time reading stuff on the Internet, I write a blog entry, and this weekend I’ll be spending much of it doing a website for my local community group.

Yep, I’m a nerd too ;)

PS – I spent a lovely day today at the National Museum with my daughter and a friend. I actually do get out of the house frequently;)

    People call me a nerd because I do homework for fun, kids are jealous because I outsmart them most of the time.
