The family that gets geeky together stays together. That’s how the saying goes, isn’t it? It doesn’t matter, I suppose. I happen to know that it’s very true.

My parents – Joe and Judy Pirillo – and my brother Adam were all here to help with the Gnomedex conference. While hanging around at the house late one night after the event had ended for the day, I noticed that everyone was playing with some type of gadget.

Here you see Dad shooting things on the iPad while Mom is griping at a game on her iPod Touch. Adam, of course, couldn’t resist stepping in to help Dad get his game on.

Does your family get geeky together?

  1. God no. My wife hates technology and finds it insulting if I use my iPhone or netbook while we’re sitting on the couch watching TV together.

    I get a hard time for listening to my iPod while falling asleep. Heck, she doesn’t even want a TV in the bedroom.

  2. Nope, I’m the only nerd in my family. I’ve tried getting my younger siblings into computers and technology. However, all that’s accomplished is a lot of Facebook nonsense. Although, I can be proud to say that, without me, my family would still be using dial-up.
