Ep. 152 – Geeks on Bikes!
TOPIC: A surprise party of guests this week, as we talk to the pair behind ‘Real Geeks Ride‘ – a cross-country biking adventure to raise awareness of the fact that geeks do ride, and that riding a bike to work is possible for everyone! We also get Jay “Geek Trivia” Garmon back and he wows us with a specially crafted space-oriented trivia question that will really make you think!
The coolsites of the week just keep getting better, and this week we’ve got:
- Bubbl.us – Like the ever-popular Mindmeister, this mindmapping software will let you get it all out of your head and someplace usable; Bubbl.us makes it about as easy as can be with cute bubbles and – of course – free mapping!
- MonkeyOn – Put a monkey on somebody else’s back for a change! Schedule reminders and tasks for other people and keep bugging them until they get ‘er done!
The podcast only song of the week is “The Future is Where We Belong” by the Hotpipes.
