Geek pride continuously surprises me. How did we get to this point, the point at which reveling in one’s social ineptitude has become a viable social action? This product in particular I find amazing. Hilarious, but amazing.
A direct relationship can be drawn between the broad acceptance of the Geek Nation and the realization of Uncle Bill’s dream of a personal computer in every home. All of a sudden these kids have a purpose in their families. Computer acting up? Call Mikey. Thus a place in modern society, and thus respect and endorsement.
I want to know what the hell geeks did before computers went mainstream. I know they read Dune. Ham radio? Model railroads? What did groups of geeks do before the Playstation? Chess club?
