I like to watch CBS’s Sunday Morning show on "you guessed it” Sunday mornings. Recently they did a piece on “Once Objects of Scorn, Nerds Now Rule.” And it got me smiling!  It’s not that being a nerd has become trendy per se but that with the new culture of wireless gadgets and the Internet, you have to be nerd-minded in order to communicate, be connected, survive in the 21st century.  So, voila.  Nerd has become the new normal! I like this a lot.

 

So if nerd is the new normal....welcome to the most normal place on earth.... MWJ:-)


Ok, I'm teasing but can't we all use a little happy side bar these days?  Enough already with the economy, dismal unemployment figures, global warming and Tiger Woods.  Let's talk about how good it feels to finally be "in vogue" with our nerdiness.  I for one enjoy working on my computer, checking emails, blackberry, the new Google Wave, etc etc and helping my kids with their math homework.  When I posted this link onto my facebook page recently, a coworker from AWR shared the following with me in return: “Men Who Use Computers are the New Sex Symbols of the ‘90s.”   Seem to me that at least some of my friends are proud of this new normal nerdy phenomena.

So come one, come all and celebrate this nerd is the new normal era with me.  Mark your calendars now for Tuesday night, May 25th from 5:30-7:30pm for a Women in Microwave Engineering Happy Hour at IMS 2010 in Anaheim.  Bring your normal male friends if you like but come and network with the female form of normal.  The renowned Peggy Aycinena, freelance nerd journalist and editor of EDA Confidential, will be our special guest speaker. And if this isn't enough to entice you, I’ll be raffling off Spa-finder gift certificates every 15 minutes throughout the evening—what normal female (nerdy or not) doesn't like a spa?

Check your IMS Program for more details on the location closer to the actual event but I for one am looking forward to meeting all of you there!
