alright, while i might normally bash on the geekiness of Pokemon Go… I actually think it’s great. Not that i’m playing it (i’d rather relax and/or drink beer, or game xbox or pc), but several of my cooworkers are. I’m in IT, so these folks can be your normal guy to the uber geek who rarely sees the light of day (IT is almost always in the basement away from actual sunlight).
One walked over 10miles the other weekend, and lost 5 lbs from the last week or two walking after work. That’s cool. Even better, he’s socializing and apparently there are quite a few like-minded and attractive girls playing! Fun game, exercise, and meeting girls with similar interests? Win-Win-Win.
I say if you want to esk8 and Pokemon - do it within your skill level and safely.
