At the risk of dating myself, I'm just going to put it out there that I was a huge Doogie Howser, MD  fan. In fact, I couldn't have been more ecstatic a few years ago when Neil Patrick Harris  made a triumphant comeback with Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle , which of course led to his awesome role as Barney Stinson on How I Met Your Mother . I watch NPH on HIMYM — a slick, chic geek with his iPhone  — 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  and tapped out his thoughts daily. That's right, everybody: Doogie was a blogger ! Or at least, a blogger in its first form. If Doogie Howser were on TV today, he would have found Blogger  and set up shop (with fitsugar  on his RSS Reader , of course). So here's to you, Doogie, our beloved old school geek !
