Geek Girl started in March of 2008 on my birthday when I just became so frustrated hearing stories of woe from bright, articulate women who did not know the basics of computers and the Internet, had a penchant for being taken advantage of by computer gimmicks and overly anxious sales clerks who liked to believe they really DID need an extended warranty for that 42 inch plasma, so maybe they should speak with their husband who knows more about that stuff than the little lady… Ugh. These are all true stories of the women I adore in my life. Like my Mom. And my girlfriends. And female clients. Geek Girl Camp

Due to its handling of leap seconds, it is neither a linear representation of time nor a true representation of UTC.

YouTube's most viewed video of all time is an unlikely champion. Seen more than 170 million times since its posting in May 2007, "Charlie Bit My Finger" was never meant to be anything more than a family flick. But the Internet's hive mind saw something it liked and catapulted the clip, which depicts a laughing British baby gnawing on the finger of his crying brother, past "Evolution of Dance" as YouTube's views champ by the fall of 2009.
