About the Great Lakes Geek
Who/What is the Great Lakes Geek?

Many have tried to un-mask this superhero. But its' not a mask. That is really his face.

The Great Lakes Geek is the nom de plume of Dan Hanson who knew that it was Chic to be Geek long before it became popular. Armed with an MS in Mathematics, our hero has fought valiantly to achieve and maintain his status as Alpha Geek.

His street cred has been enhanced by his title of Entreprenerd - a careful blend of business adventure and techie chops.

He operates from the Geek-cave, located somewhere in the heart of Cleveland, Ohio - hence, the Great Lakes moniker.

What is on the Great Lakes Geek website?

The Great Lakes Geek website is intended to fill several needs in the business and technology community - primarily, but not exclusively, in Northeast Ohio.

First is the Great Lakes Geek show itself which features audio and video interviews and commentary. The show is informative, opinionated and sometimes irreverent. But it is always honest and will let you hear for yourself the thoughts and ideas of business and tech leaders in the region and beyond.

The second component of the site is a comprehensive calendar of business and technology events. Unlike the numerous partial calendars that are floating around, the Great Lakes Geek calendar will strive to be complete - without regard to who advertises with us or is flavor of the month.

Third is the Speaker's Bureau. Need a speaker on a certain topic for your event? Browse our listings and we can help you secure the perfect person to rock your event. This section was so popular that we split it off to its own site.

Fourth is the Geek Reviews.The Geek attends events, reads books and tries products - and then tells you about them.

Fifth is Science and Math Tips.What kind of Geek would I be if we didn't have lots of info and fun stuff about Math and various branches of Science (Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Biology and so on.

Sixth is Geek History. The Great Lakes Geek was fortunate to grow up along with the PC industry. He built his first computer in grade school, programmed BASIC on a TRS80 Model I and made the big move to MS-DOS on an IBM PC clone when they came out. It's amazing how new some of the things we take for granted really are.

Seventh is Geek Tips. Everyday we offer free software to Great Lakes Geek visitors to download. We post the best tips - Hardware, Microsoft Office, Windows and more to make your life easier and more efficient (and fun).

And speaking of fun... welcome to # Eight. We offer a whole section of Geek Fun. Lots of jokes, games, puzzles and fun. Check it out.
