What's up? I know that the whole having to create a Blogger account to post a comment sucks, but we would really love to hear from you. This blog wasn't created just so Ayize and me could showboat. The initial intention was to have a place where we could post work (fiction, non-fiction, photos) from other AfroGeeks/Alterna-Blacks and sort of have an on-line spot where we all could comment on geek culture from a Black point of view. This POV isn't restricted to just Blackness, because Blackness isn't a stand-alone thing. Blackness intersects with gender, sexuality, spirituality, class, education and almost every other damned thing you can think of. We truly want to hear from you. If you are interested in posting, you can send your work to either of the following.

Segue: For those of you that dig our logo, you have my main man Roy Miles (www.biddies.us) toymaker and graphic designer extraordinaire to thank for the illness. I gave him the idea and old boy finalized it in under and hour. He’s a damn genius. By mid-Summer, we should have some t-shirts ready for you to rock.
Segue #2: Posting will be a bit sporadic over the next few weeks. Ayize is in Morocco and I got a book deal and have to have the final draft in fairly soon.
Segue#3: Run, not walk, and cop TV on the Radio’s Return to Cookie Mountain. One of the best albums of 2006.
