I was extremely excited when Ken Denmead himself, the namekeeper of Wired‘s Geek Dad replied to one of our posts about him. So naturally, I asked him if I could do a Q&A with him. To our delight, he said yes – and I told him I’d contact him in a couple months when he had a new book coming out. Naturally, Ken blew it off and forgot about 8BitDad. So when I read that pre-orders were now open for his new book, “The Geek Dad Book for Aspiring Mad Scientists,” I looked Denmead up in my Rolodex and had my secretary get him on the horn.
Okay, that’s not exactly how it happened, but we made sure that Denmead was staying on our radar, and when we heard about “The Geek Dad Book for Aspiring Mad Scientists,” we knew we had to ask him a couple questions.
