This week I’d like to introduce you to @Mainframe, also known as Richard Green. Richard is a mainframe programmer, comic book and podcast fan, a writer, a blogger, and a podcaster. And a Southern Gentleman Geek. If you’ve any questions as to what that is, you’ve only to listen to his podcast, Geek Out! with Mainframe. Richard combines southern charm and politeness with a geek’s thirst for knowledge and attention to detail. For his writing, you can read the companion blog to his podcast, or listen to the story he submitted to the Every Photo Tells… Podcast. Or, you could just follow him on Twitter.

In the Twitterverse, @Mainframe is a big conversationalist. For the most part, he doesn’t tweet to the general public very much, but responds and converses with the other people in his network. But if you’re following other folks in his network, you’ll note that he tweets with good humor and retweets to support projects that are cool to his geeky senses. If you’re not following other folks in his network, ask him who to follow! Engage him on a variety of topics. Mainframe computing, podcasts, and comic books to name a few. I think you’ll find him knowledgable and happy to share his viewpoints.

Monday I will be back with a new review. This time I’ll be looking at my favorite wireless networking solution. I’m sure that some of you can already guess what it will be, but I hope you’ll enjoy the writeup anyway. In the meantime, there is a new poll up for the month of July, so be sure to vote while you can. Have a good weekend, and I’ll see you soon!
