Geek Culture

I am a total nerd, and I love it.

I have always loved science and math.

My first computer was an Atari 400. I had a TI-99 4/A, and I wrote a database for it, but couldn't save it, because I didn't have any tapes for my tape drive. Well, that's not entirely true. I had a tape, but it was "Off The Wall" and I didn't want to record over it.

See? Geek.

I wrote a sort of manifesto some years back, called "In Defense of Nerds". If I can ever find it, I'll put it up here, but the thesis was: Why do we, as a society, ridicule the children who use their brains and excel in school, and reward the ones who can run the fastest, or hit the hardest? Maybe it's because I was always picked last for kick ball, and the dodge ball always seemed to find my face...I dunno.

The point is, I am a geek. I am very proud of that fact, and I have found the following places to be populated with people of a like mind:

Slashdot - News for nerds. Stuff that matters.

Kuro5hin - A place for people who like to think.

Everything2 - This website has grown from being a very simple user-written encyclopedia to a very complex online community.
