Dr Hercules Bantas has been teaching and reading the human sciences for the better part of a decade. It is his opinion that he is too often immersed in some weighty tome or other, the authors of which always use one thousand words where one hundred words would suffice. It was while juggling no less than three weighty tomes by the same author and trying to understand what the fellow was trying to say that the idea of The Reluctant Geek Guides was born. He is well aware that publishing clearly written and unambiguous guides to important ideas in the human sciences is frowned upon in some circles, but he's going to do it anyway. Despite his well documented grumpiness, Hercules claims to like people and can be contacted by email at reluctantgeek[at]iinet.net.au.

Have heart, Eric. Technology may be the beast, but it's good to have a beast in your corner. It's the technologists that aren't in our corner, thinking that living like beasts places them above all the higher animals. When tech wises up, it will do away with them first. Same thing with organized crime. When lawyers write away all laws, crime will consume anyone with a notion of writing a law. OH look, it's 9/2 already, the time of the defamation of the gift of words is upon us. Seasons Greetings!
