About this Site and its Author
The Great Geek Manual is your one-stop source for geek culture on the web. TGGM feature a daily round-up of links of interest to geeks, as well as a daily “This Day in Geek History” feature.
Started almost a decade ago, “This Day in Geek History” is a recap of all the day’s historical events in the fields of computers, culture, hacking, software, and technology. The list has been researched and compiled with loving care to include most import moments that have shaped Geek culture down the centuries.
The Great Geek Manual also features original humor, reviews, and geek culture commentary.
I’m your host, Pipedreamergrey. I’m a twenty-something white male living in Michigan who enjoys all things Geek, including anime, comics, computers, programming, renaissance faires, roleplaying games, video games, etc. Most of my free time is spent online, reading or nursing my hardcore MMORPG addiction. I started this blog with the help of the good people over at Host Color in order to reach a larger audience with my daily history compilation after years of using Livejournal.
For those who just can’t wait that long to learn more about me, here are some links to more information than you ever wanted to know about me:
