I found out this year the state won't allow FOOBAR on a vanity plate! They confuse it with FUBAR.
This is my site, so I get to choose the best Granite Geek posts/articles of 2019. Here they are, looking backwards through the year.
(What about my favorite post of the decade? Many of the several thousand posts I’ve written over the past 10 years have disappeared due to changes in servers and employers and I’ve forgotten them, so I can’t choose a favorite. But I will include one possiblity at the very end.)
Dave Brooks has written a science/tech column since 1991 – yes, that long – and has written this blog since 2006, keeping an eye on topics of geekish interest in and around New Hampshire, from software to sea level rise, population dynamics to printing (3-D, of course). He moderates monthly Science Cafe NH discussions, beer in hand, and discusses the geek world regularly on WGIR-AM radio..
Brooks earned a bachelor’s degree in mathematics but got lost on the way to the Ivory Tower and ended up in a newsroom. He has reported for newspapers from Tennessee to New England. Rummage through his bag of awards you’ll find oddities like three Best Blog prizes from the New Hampshire Press Association and a Writer of the Year award from the N.H. Farm and Forest Bureau, of all places. He joined the Concord Monitor in 2015.
