Tours in Repose



Rands’ article, “The Nerd Handbook”, was the talk of the web over the weekend. And rightly so. Thousands of nerds were completely wierded out at how well they were pegged by Rands while laughed their heads off at how well they were pegged by Rands.

No doubt many of you are new to Rands in Repose, and you may not realize that he’s been writing fantastic articles for years. Well, here are a few suggested readings by Rands from me for you to enjoy before Monday starts:

  1. Why You Should Weblog

  1. A Nerd in a Cave

It might be a garage full of tools or a kitchen full of cookware, but there is a Cave stashed somewhere in the house.
