Hi! I'm Joe and this is my website.
My name is Joe Siegler. I've spent most of my life being online, going back to my first modem in an Apple // on CompuServe in the 80's, through Fidonet, and onto the Internet. My online footprint has evolved to this blog and my social media presence, which you can see elsewhere. These days I work for "The Social Element", a social media company out of England. My hobbies (I suppose) are TV sci-Fi (Doctor Who, Star Trek), baseball (Texas Rangers & Phillies), and music (hard rock mostly, but not all that). I have a totally separate site about my love of the Texas Rangers. :) This blog is mostly my thoughts on movies and music, as well as quite a few stories about my years working for 3D Realms.Let's keep in touch
Follow Me on Twitter
Of all the social media platforms out there, I prefer Twitter. It's by far my favorite, the immediacy speaks to me. Properly managed, it's an amazing tool. People need to not try and drink from the firehose, that's a problem. Learn how to properly curate the flood of info, and you'll love it.Meet Me on Twitter

Those who know me (and have read my blog over the years) know that I spent quite some time working for Scott Miller & George Broussard of Apogee Software (later 3D Realms). Was probably the single most fun job I’ve ever had in my life, and to this day, I still wish the old team […]
I’ve known about George Takei for probably my entire life, as I was watching Star Trek as far back as the 60’s (in a playpen, but still)… As the years went by I learned he was way more than just an actor, he was an activist for any number of things, including gay rights, but […]
