The Geekdad 42

Reading Time: 2 minutes

One thing that’s been missing from the Geekdad sidebar for as long as I can remember (meaning: since I joined the blog) is a links list.  So, now it is time to compile such a handly compilation of favorite Geekdad resources and time-wasters.  Below you will find a preliminary list based upon suggestions from a number of the Geekdad contributors.  We’d like to open up the process to our loyal readers.  In the comments, please suggest any other websites that you, as geeks and/or parents, find particularly useful, informative, or fun (or any combination of the three).  The Geekdads will take a look at your suggestions, and in a couple weeks, we hope to add The Geekdad 42 list to the sidebar.
