That's great, Chris. I love the geekdad blog already... Brilliant idea, and you're the perfect person to do it. I look forward to seeing what you do with it.

Great to hear about geekdad.com

Hope you get a chance to check out www.Minti.com (a parent to parent advice-opedia) and maybe write a father's article on toys and their children? :)

Geekdad sounds awesome. I'll let all my homeschool families know about it too-they are all about finding stuff like this.

Planning on pre-ordering the book soon.

By the way, does anyone else here HATE the dust jacket Amazon.com shows for the book? What the hell does an Enter key have to do with anything Chris has talked about for over a year?

I hope you fought for a better cover to your book, because if it doesn't sell well, it will be precisely because people have no clue what to expect by looking at an "Enter" key. And it's not even the fact it's an "Enter" key that should make you upset. It's an "Enter" key with a 1995 dropshadow Photoshop effect. I usually don't say someone did a bad job at something, but, I mean, wow, someone put zero effort into that.

I feel sorry for you Chris. Hyperion hired a cover artist with LESS talent than the person who designed this book: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0807061875/

I've noticed a lot of Hyperion books have bad cover art.

Chris -- Great to hear about geekdad.com I have a blog for teachers and parents at http://www.stevespangler.com and judging from the "dad" email we get, I think you've hit on something big. Check out the Experiments or Cool Science Videos links - maybe we can share some fun posts for your new venture.
