As we’ve started to tweet a lot now on Twitter, we’re getting some interest from all over the world. So, we thought it best to put this page up and let people know a little bit more about Catholic.geek, this site, and what we’re planning to do in the future.
Catholic.geek is a micro-community. We say that because there are only a handful of us at the moment, and we’re dedicated to all things Catholic and geeky and kiwi (as in New Zealand). So, those three things together make us quite a small minority.
The blog posts to this point have been reflections of our regular column in the national Catholic newspaper – the NZ Catholic – and so are often aimed at a non-technical audience. However, our plan is to expand the site and make it more of a traditional blog with thoughts and commentary ranging from technology overviews through to interesting ways that technology and geeky things can be used to better spread the Good News of Christ.
We are based in New Zealand and, no, we don’t have pet sheep. (Actually, for the record, I think Australia has more sheep per capita than NZ anyway. ) We’ve also got a few ideas of projects which we’ve put up on the site to see if others out there want to join us to help.
So, we’d love to hear from you – wherever you are – and if you have any feedback, send it through.
