Geek Dads Weekly #51 – Advent Birds


In which Daniel and Joe discuss friends and family, Angry Birds, another Affiliate Summit pass giveaway, and why Derek Jeter needs to be a Yankee.

We began this time with some family talk – high school reunions, the perils of moving kids from school to school, and settling in new places. We also talked about Facebook/Twitter usage among the general population (I meant a hundred and four or five million, not “four or five million” Twitter users. Sorry for the misspeak. Don’t know where my head was in that moment.) Also,

More on the kids – my daughter Winter will be tested for the “Gifted & Talented” program at school, which is awesome. Joe and I talked about what that means exactly, and I told my story about skipping Kindergarten and how that affected me in later years.

Next up: Angry Birds! The expansion was just released and it’s… weird. You get 25 new levels, but they’re doling them out one per day, like it’s an Advent calendar. Ugh. I’m not a fan. Gimme mah levels!

Groupon is (apparently) being bought by Google. We kicked a few thoughts around about Groupon and I pose the question: does Google have to buy everything?

Joe’s Sports Minute is about Derek Jeter this time, with the free agent currently out of a Yankee uniform. We both agreed that’s ridiculous and the club needs to sign the guy and be done with it. He’s a Yankee. Sign him.

Lastly, we have one more Gold pass for Affiliate Summit to give away! Call us at 281-826-2112, leave your name and Twitter handle (or email), and a reason you’d like to attend Affiliate Summit. We’ll draw one name next Thursday morning (at noon Eastern). Gold passes are valued at over $500, enter today!

Thanks for listening! We’d love to hear your thoughts. Leave us a voice mail at 281-826-2112.
