5 Minutes for Books — How to Be a Geek Goddess

by Jennifer Donovan

I count myself among the many women out there who have gained significantly more techie knowledge over the last couple of years than I ever thought I would have. Through blogging I’ve learned about HTML coding, uploads, feeds and things I never thought I’d know about (or even care to know). My husband gave me a Logitech Squeezebox Boom Network Music Player for Christmas, which involved several steps of installation that allowed this innovative music player to access internet radio and my music library as stored on my harddrive. Instead of pleading ignorance and letting “the man” do it, I figured it out myself. I’ve also set up wireless printers and video game systems, not to mention tried (tried, I say) to diagnose and repair problems on my computer. Being a housewife isn’t what it used to be.

Even five years ago, a woman could consider herself a domestic goddess if she kept the laundry done and managed to get a hot meal on the table a few days a week while also keeping up with social schedules and homework. But now we all need a rudimentary technical knowledge to keep our homes in good working order, and if we have more than basic skills, we can really add value to our family.

No Starch Press offers “the finest in geek entertainment” with books about Lego Robot kits, networking and more. How to Be a Geek Goddess: Practical Advice for Using Computers with Smarts and Style by Christina Tynan-Wood provides the best in technical information written by a woman, for women. She doesn’t dumb it down, but she doesn’t try to show off her expertise with confusing terms and acronyms. This book gave me practical information about

  • Buying a computer
  • Making the most of your home WIFI network
  • Tips to keep your computer running quickly (and notice I didn’t use that confusing power word optimization, nor did she)
  • Customizing your own start page and using free scheduling tools

For those less familiar with some of the basics, this book also covers

  • Getting online
  • Social networking: blogs, facebook etc
  • Internet shopping (with sites and tips that were helpful to me, a veteran shopper as well

This informative and highly readable book would make a great gift for your mom or grandmother who has just gotten online or perhaps wants to go beyond just using the computer for email. Because of the more advanced information, it also makes a great reference for any home library.

You can check out the chapter on shopping yourself right now. For the latest information, check out author Christina Tynan-Wood’s blog Geek Girlfriends.

Pick me! My husband is a HUGE self-proclaimed geek. I better get working if I’m going to become his Geek Goddess!!!

2 Stephanie'sMommyBrain January 5, 2009 at 12:13 am

With a computer programmer for a husband it’s all too easy to just let him set things up and problem solve. (Now I know why my mom can’t set the vcr timer!!) But blogging has me moving more and more into the geek world by choice. My hubby even brought a couple of html books home for me to read to help with the tech side of blogging. Funny what we can do when we have an interest in it. Maybe some day I’ll learn how to erase the messages off my answering machine… or not. = )

3 Noreen January 5, 2009 at 1:30 am

I bet this book would be very helpful for me, I wish to be a geek godess :)

4 Jess January 5, 2009 at 1:32 am

I’m a biology nerd, but I’m far from the Linux geek I want to be…

5 Misty January 5, 2009 at 2:07 am

I have to agree that I have also learned a lot of techie information as I have setup my family blog and my facebook site…but there is more yet to learn. I always ask my husband what html code i need to do certain things..because my compose feature always needs some html code added for the formatting to work.

6 Meg Munson January 5, 2009 at 2:14 am

This sounds like a great read!

7 Ginnie January 5, 2009 at 2:26 am

I’ve learned a lot but there’s so much more I want to know. Maybe this will help.

8 Maddy January 5, 2009 at 2:41 am

I don’t know about a ‘geek ‘ goddess. Any kind of goddess would do for now.
Cheers

9 Joelle January 5, 2009 at 2:43 am

This would be a perfect gift for my mom! She’s so fearful she’ll click on something and her whole computer will explode :)

10 Aisling January 5, 2009 at 7:26 am

39 Barbara H. January 5, 2009 at 2:44 pm

So I finally learn how to use the CD player & everyone switched to MP3s. At last, I can program the VCR, but everyone switched to DVDs. I can access the internet, but everyone left me for blogs, twisters, twitters, twaddles, whatever. And what the heck does 404 error mean, anyway. Yeah, I need the book.

40 dan tynan January 5, 2009 at 2:45 pm

When I read the title I had to laugh. This would be a great book to have and read. Hubby actually was calling me a geek the other day because I am always “trying” to do different things on the computer. I laughed and said I’m proud to be called a geek, that is my goal in life to be a really good one. lol.. So this book would be perfect !! Thanks

136 Jen January 9, 2009 at 1:58 am

I would love to have this, and share it with my mom, so my wonderful hubby doesn’t always have to help us figure out our computer issues!

137 raych January 9, 2009 at 2:52 pm

Oh please oh please pick me. I am definitely the ‘techie’ of our house, but that just means that I’m in charge of phoning my dad for help whenever something goes wrong, computer-wise. I’d love to be able to stand on my own two (very adult) feet.

I’m the Mom of 2 grown children and have 2 grandchildren and taught myself the computer 6 years ago. I took to it immediately (having always loved setting up my vcr, Tivo, etc), and now my husband says that he can’t believe that he’s married to a total geek! Would love to win this. Thanks!
