About the author
Natania Barron, Kathy Ceceri, Corrina Lawson, and Jenny Williams are the cofounders and senior editors of Wired.com’s GeekMom blog. The only female contributors to the GeekDad blog, they joined together to create a website where women could share some of the special aspects of being geeky and being moms. Today the GeekMom blog’s loyal followers—men and women, parents and others—flock to hear them talk at conventions around the country. In addition to its editors, the GeekMom blog has more than twenty regular contributors and many more occasional writers from across the United States, Canada, and Europe. This is the first joint book project for the four coauthors.
