Landing on the GeekDeck

As Og has already pointed out, our good friend Pete has managed to rope us into another one of his crazy projects, GeekDeck. It’s basically getting together a group of computer geeks who like to write and putting together an eclectic “zine/blog thingy … to expand peoples geek palettes”. It’s going to have monthly issues covering a large range of topics and will hopefully have a nice looking PDF version as well soonish.

This month I talked about a couple personal examples of how I’m using open source software in undergraduate and graduate science (specifically physical chemistry) education. Og’s “Cherry Picks of the Month” is fantastic, a great read, as was Pete’s interview of our very own Alan Pope. GeekDeck Issue 1 has a total of eleven articles so go check it out!
