I must admit: I do not watch the news anymore.  I rarely have time to watch television or movies in general – if I’m not working, I’m writing.  Yet somehow through RSS feeds, Twitter, Yahoo, and Wikipedia, I’ve managed to learn quite a bit about a wide range of topics – and then write about them.  Some include:

It’s sort of refreshing to step back and take a look at all the very important (and very arcane) things I’ve learned.  I absolutely guarantee you that I would not have researched 95% of this stuff if I hadn’t been desperate eager for a blog post topic.  Ergo, go forth and blog, and learn many things!

On a side note: in taking this step back and reviewing what I’ve learned, I’ve come to the conclusion that this is, after all, a geek blog.  Huzzah.

What crazy, important, or disturbing things have you learned from blogging?
