Valerie Skinner

Blog Authors:  Valerie Skinner   is part of the IBM developerWorks team, getting to know the real developers who make up the My developerWorks community and exploring the world of social networking. I'm enjoying learning what makes developers tick! I'm very interested in exploring online communities and social media and understanding real world application - how they can help people solve problems and work together.

P.S. The photo was taken at the Davis Mountains State Park in West Texas. I loved the contrast between the distant misty horizon and the prickly green yucca. It reminded me of a yin-yang relationship! Which is why I used it in my first blog post.

Valerie, GEEKS love you too. As you say, opposites attract. But I think the real reason geeks love you is because of the passion you described in your blog. You commitment to help developers understand why they should use My developerWorks, how they can collaborate,how they can connect and find experts and how they can ultimately work smarter is just what the geeks who built My developerWorks want to see and the geeks who visit my developerWorks want to know. You rock Valerie!

As a pocket protector carrying member of the Geek club, I can say with full confidence that geeks do enjoy working with you and respect what you bring to the table. So, I can not wait to hear your tidbits and other thoughts you have on My dW and social interaction (both virtual and not).
