I checked this morning, and the “Geek of Geeks” feature story that Steve Woodward wrote about me is now online on the The Oregonian’s site. Go have a read! Here’s a snippet:
In a metropolitan area brimming with tens of thousands of software engineers, hardware designers, Web designers, systems administrators and diehard Internet users, even Josh Bancroft stands out as a geek’s geek…
Bancroft, in a sense, is a visitor from our near future — a world in which everyone everywhere is connected here and now. Time and place are no longer barriers. Technology connects, not separates, us.
There’s a lot that was in the paper article that’s not on the site, including a few sidebar items. I’ll take some photos of the dead tree version of the story and get them posted soon, so you can see the whole effect. It’s a center fold two full page story in the middle of “The O” section of this Sunday’s paper (2/25/07). Go pick up the paper, and I’ll autograph your copy next time I see you.
Thanks to everyone for the kind words about the article – it’s been extremely fun, and I have a feeling it’s just starting. And special thanks to Steve Woodward at The Oregonian for doing a great job writing the article.
Now I’m off to find some dark shades so I can avoid the paparazzi when I go out in public, now that I’m a celebrity.
