The Nerdery Public republic writes, a lot; and you won’t find any regurgitated material here.

So, in order to keep things organized we have divided up our scribblings and rants and raves into a handful of different blogs (or categories) for you, the reader. Here are our most recent posts in each blog/category – with a description of the blog/category – so you know what you’re getting into. We’re nice like that. If you want MORE of one particular blog/category, just click on the logo and you can read everything we’ve written there. Now, go forth and read… what are you waiting for? We’re typing out fingers to the bone for you!
