Who are you and what do you do?
Sarah Johnson, I have a web design business called etruro.com and I’m a writer as well.
What will you be teaching at Geek Girl Tech Conference this year?
SEO, Google Analytics, Writing for the Web, and WordPress Advanced
What was your favorite part of the conference last year?
The people. The classes were full and people were really fired up to learn.
PC or Mac?
Definitely a Mac, though I have a lot of PC experience from corporate life.
When did you first know you were geeky?
When I was 10 or 11 and begged for math puzzle books that were like crossword puzzles but with math and logic algorithms…early aptitude signals for programming-geek.
Star Wars or Star Trek?
Choose 5 people from any moment of time to have dinner and drinks with. Who would they be and why?
Emile Zola, because he’s my favorite writer these days and he was incredibly prolific and able to write his way into all kinds of characters and situations. Matt Damon, because he’s a local guy who made good-and I way over-identified with Good Will Hunting. President Obama because he’s incredibly interesting and human without having an attitude about himself, and he’s seems like he’d be a lot of fun. Bon Iver because I’m interested in his creative process, and Eleanor Roosevelt, who Truman called “The First Lady of the World” for her human rights efforts.
Who do feel has had the most impact on technology in your time?
Steve Jobs without a doubt, simplifying, innovating, inventing….isn’t everyone going to own an iPad in the next year?
Facebook or Twitter?
Tell us something about you nobody knows….
Seriously, if nobody knows, there’s no way I’m going to tell 500 geek girls about it.
