Joe’s Geek Fest is a little over a year in active blogging. It started as a more formal way to share recommendations about technology and books requeseted by friends and family. It has blossomed into a focus on books while also writing on music, movies, technology and culture. Rather than simply being a stomping ground to express opinion, the blog is typically a place to provide, through such evidence as passages, clips and video, a basis for readers to reach their own conlusions. Book reviews typically include reviews of the audio book format as well.
