Since I'm in Love with One...

(a nerd, that is)...a couple days ago, my kids gave me a moment that just made me laugh. We watched some short videos connecting music to science (Mythbusters is amazing!), including one where we saw a singer explode a crystal glass by singing (unamplified!). We were trying to get the kids to tell us what it would take to re-create that experiment. One of the "ingredients" we were trying to get them to say was "sound technician." Robin prompted, "the other man, who was running the sound board...connecting the computers..." Several boys shouted out "a NERD!" Well...I guess so... I think I could teach all day 5 days a week if I had a moment like that every day. You know, come to think of it, I think I'll make sure I create my own such moments if the kids don't! :)
ps- if you don't believe in the unqualified nerdiness of my beloved, check out his newly-released "baby:" www.ubercart.org

Wow, what an incredible looking project! ; )

For what it's worth, I had an "interview" with this guy about the project: http://www.ubercart.org/forum/announcements/481/ubercart_articles_reviews.

Also, the tally on folks from around the world using or supporting Ubercart is growing... guys from Germany, Spain, Norway, Holland, Poland, India, Australia... and of course the U.S. Incredible!
