The Geeks Have Inherited The Earth
from the according-to-USA-Today dept
Well, I thought this stage came and went in the late nineties, but USA Today has suddenly discovered that it’s cool to be a geek, and has come up with random (very weakly associated) ways that pop culture is currently celebrating “geekdom”. At least the article admits at the top that most actual geeks will probably scoff at the article and the points it tries to make – but they don’t really care. The article is clearly targeted at non-geeks, so its own lack of geek cred doesn’t seem to concern the writers. They also have a pretty loose definition of “geek” – which in some ways could include just about everyone.
