I have been "Geeked"

I got this last week but was too busy to post it. Dennis Smith of such famous blogs as Jobgeeks and wirelessjobs has "Geeked" me. Thier site has this as it's tagline, "...the Job is what gives a Geek his power. It's an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together." (Original quote from Alec Guinness during casting interview for role as Obi-Wan Kenobi). Or not."

Here is the initial email that made me famous:

Hey Bruce - just wanted you to know that you've been geeked.

Well, sort of.

I author a few blogs - wirelessjobs.com is my main blog, but I also keep up a blog called JobGeeks.com. And I recently started a new weekly posting called, "JobGeek O' the Week."

Unfortunately for you : ), you've been dubbed this week's geek.

Hope the pending fame and fortune doesn't go to your head.

Take care,

Dennis Smith

Personally, I think they are selling themselves short. I fear the outcome of this potential flood of traffic as previous award winner, Jeremy, seems to have had quite the deluge. Here are quotes from their site:
I hope you fair better than last week's Geek.

I hear Jeremy has since had to buy a new server (the crash was pretty severe due to the increased traffic), and, he's had to escape to the underground blogging community (where all A-Listers eventually go so they can blog, shop, and simply walk the streets in peace - far away from the masses vying for their attention link-love).
Well, what can I say. I would like to thank all those that made this possible. My mom, My beautiful wife, Lisa, without whose support this wouldn't have been possible, my kids, my agent, Morty...
