Geek Dads Weekly #83 – Prepare to Be Cooked


In which Daniel, Drew and Joe care not about getting cooked by a solar flare. The rest of you are toast.

But look on the bright side, if you get hit by a solar flare, there’s a slight chance you could get turned into the Incredible Hulk. Think of all the money you’ll save on clothes if you just run around in torn pants all the time.

Assuming we live through the solar flare, Missy Ward and her Affiliate Marketers Give Back crew are walking to support the fight against breast cancer this weekend. Please help out by making a donation – any amount will be appreciated – and follow their progress to cheer them on! I interviewed Missy on today’s episode of Inside Internet Marketing; listen to learn more about Missy and her passion for the fight.

Next up – the winner of our first Affiliate Summit East 2011 Gold Pass Giveaway Contest Extravaganza! Our winner is…

  1. Hi! I would like to go to Affiliate Summit! I am a new affiliate (started learning in October of last year) and went to the Affiliate Summit in Las Vegas. It was a fantastic learning experience. I would love to go to the one in New York as I continue learning about all things affiliate. Thanks for the opportunity!
