I remember when I was a kid, my dad used to read to me at bedtime from his latest issues of Scientific American magazine. Sometimes I wonder if that contributed to my being a little nerdy, and pretty good at math (when I want to be). I mean, I took computer science in high school and absolutely loved it. So taking a page from the book of my dad, I’ve started to read articles from The Economist to Neptune at bedtime. You’d be surprised how an article on a 19th-century Belgium painter, or a book review about the physics of nothingness can be made interesting with an enthusiastic reading voice.
This morning I saw this list of 100 Geeky Places to take your Kids this Summer. I’m bookmarking this shit for the next time we go on tour. Its never too soon to start raising a little nerd.
