Geek Boy Travel Photos

Posted on | December 31, 2009 | 1 Comment



My husband and I both work in software. Our children, poor lambs, could type before they could write. Having a three-year-old who’s more technically literate than many most of the adults around him was extremely cool in 1999. Now, I’m paying the price. When we’re traveling, my child will take my camera and take detailed photos of technical glitches in information displays anywhere and everywhere we happen to come across them. The photo above was taken in Darling Harbour, Sydney.


This display should have been showing information about Dugongs at the Sydney Aquarium.


At the International Space Center stop on the bus tour of Kennedy Space Center.


With the NASA logo visible in the background – you know, just in case you didn’t believe that NASA too suffers from the “blue screen of death”.

Happy Photo Friday!

    This is hysterical… and yet I suspect most of these glitches are caused by our 10 year old, who has a way to find glitches in software if they exist… At 2 he caused his seat back computer to hang on a 9 hour flight to Amsterdam, meaning he wound up using mine the entire flight (they couldn’t reboot his until they landed?!?!?). Why we didn’t switch seats I’ll never know.
