GEEK PRIDE DAY
I've heard that May 25 will be Geek Pride Day. The Science Channel and other tech spots will be celebrating. According to Wikipedia the date was chosen to honor "the premiere of the first Star Wars movie in 1977."
However, there's no reason a Geek must worship "Star Wars". (Nor does a Geek -- or Nerd -- need to be socially inept or inexperienced.) A compulsive attention to any particular artifact of techy entertainment is not required.
The best of Geek is just respect for technology and a passion for knowledge.

YES. I agree. No need to memorize pi to 1000 places, or speak in Klingon. The love of learning is its own street cred.Post a Comment
