Nothing drives home the fact that you are a geek more than realizing you feel more comfortable talking to the intellectual property lawyer than to all these perfectly normal human journalists.
Yeah I got stuck in this media conference and it's like it's designed to intimidate me, from the selfish people who won't give you a ride from the airport to the formal functions.
But the worst part is explaining why you are here: "Erm, you see, I'm a blogger!".
What the hell does that mean? it's not a job, it's not an identity, and it shouldn't be treated as something soooo exciting.
I do have a blog (a much overrated one at that). It has become an important part of my life, but so is email. I don't walk around calling myself an emailer do I? And I don't get invited to conferences just because I send a lot of emails.
