Vintage Geek: Doogie Howser, Blogger

Feb 4 2008 - 9:02am

At the risk of dating myself, I'm just going to put it out there that I was a huge Doogie Howser, MD [1] fan. In fact, I couldn't have been more ecstatic a few years ago when Neil Patrick Harris [2] made a triumphant comeback with Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle [3], which of course led to his awesome role as Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother [4]. I watch NPH on HIMYM — a slick, chic geek with his iPhone [5] — and then I remember that this is not the first time he's showcased his onscreen geekiness.


As Doogie Howser, MD, the boy genius-turned-doctor, NPH sat at his ancient IBM PC [6] and tapped out his thoughts daily. That's right, everybody: Doogie was a blogger [7]! Or at least, a blogger in its first form. If Doogie Howser were on TV today, he would have found Blogger [8] and set up shop (with fitsugar [9] on his RSS Reader [10], of course). So here's to you, Doogie, our beloved old school geek [11]!
