There are geeks and then there are geeks like @IndianaJim. I would feel safe in calling him a geek’s geek or perhaps a geek among geeks. I mean come on, his Twitter handle is a tribute to the iconic Harrison Ford character and he produced a fantastic full cast Star Wars audio drama. I don’t know that he’s particularly a techie geek, but we’ve hardly let that stop us before.

I’ve been following Jim for quite some time now. He uses his tweets judiciously and he can usually be found snarking about something SF related while occasionally filling us in on his writing process or the latest episode of his podcasts. He’s also a bit of a sports geek, being a fan of the 49ers (you may also want to follow his tweets here). He’s willing to get into some verbal sparring to from time to time. The thing I like and admire most about Jim is his willingness to call things as he sees them. While he and I may not always agree, I always know where he stands.

Make sure you check out his web page where you can find out more about his podcast projects. Apparently the podcasts will be going on hiatus while he clears up some hosting issues, but he’ll be back. I would also recommend that you keep an eye on Grail Quest Books. Jim is writing a novella that they’ll be publishing in the near future.
