My Nerd Life: Too Loud, Too Funny, Too Smart, Too Fat

Carla Schroder is a self-taught Linux and Windows sysadmin and the author of the Linux Cookbook and writer of thousands of Linux tutorials.

If there is only one message you take away from reading this, let it be this: Linux and FOSS do not need more glamorous elite uber-rockstar coders. We need more ordinary, dedicated individuals from all walks of life contributing however they can. Just plain ordinary people with whatever they have to offer.

I am a born nerd, born to take things apart and put them back together, and to combine unlike things in imaginative ways. I am one of those people you never want to go shopping with, because I have to stand in front of any item I might ever under any circumstances consider purchasing, and work through in my head the nine zillion ways in which I might use it ... and then move on to the next item and repeat the trance. Because why not? Is it not all about possibilities?

Find her online at rikkiendsley.com and @rikkiends on Twitter.

I've been a writer for as long as I can remember, which is why I was thrilled to receive an electric typewriter as a high school graduation gift in 1988. Asking for a computer was never something I considered. I don't remember ever being exposed to computers while I was growing up. After high school, I didn't even use my new electric typewriter for a while. Instead, I took a year off, continued working my record store job, and saw dozens of great bands.

My nerd story starts at a record store, with a cash register and a Schwann catalog.

And this post compiles a list of better-ments I...

Tiny Geekdom

“Mom, the computer is talking to me.”

I was sitting at a VT100 in a cold office building, far from home and missing Saturday morning cartoons. My mother, a UNIX programmer at a large telco, brought me with her to the company’s San Francisco, California office that weekend since my father was out of town. It was an hour’s drive each way and 7 year old me was a bit out of sorts from the long ride and the early hour at which I’d awakened. Mom, though, knew the best way to soothe me was to park me in front of a terminal window and let me have at it with Adventure.
