The New York Times Vs. Geeks
from the stereotyping-galore dept
An article in yesterday’s New York Times talks about how geeks are chilly and anti-social. This is all based on different geek-speak or jargon watch type lists. What the author failed to realize is that most people don’t actually use any of these terms… They’re humor. Get it? Anyway, Eric Raymond has written a pretty good response. Of course, I think he takes the original article a little too seriously as well. I think we need to be reminded how to laugh every once in a while. All this serious stuff gets annoying.
