My Scott and Jean: The Master List

My Scott and Jean: The Master List

Mar 30

It all started with a simple phrase: “That’s my Scott and Jean.”

Said phrase was uttered by friend-of-Alert-Nerd Dan Faust on that bastion of 140-character social networking, Twitter. And said phrase means, essentially, “That is my geek sacred cow, the one topic I cannot discuss rationally because it makes me too insane/angry/scary-eyed.”

We had a thought: why not challenge a bunch of nerdbloggers to reveal their Scott and Jeans/geek sacred cows for all the world to see? It will either be incredibly fun or result in a bunch of smashed laptops!

Why Scott and Jean as the term’s namesake? Well, given the history and drama behind their coupling, they seem to provoke a good degree of, ahem, passion in a lot of people. Including Sarah.

This post will serve as a master list of all the “What’s Your Scott and Jean?” posts appearing across the web — check back, as it will be updated throughout the day. And if you have a link to share, email sarah AT alertnerd DOT com.
