The Evolution Of The Geek

When one hears the word geek, images are conjured of pocket protectors and nightstands made out of old comic books. That old notion of geek-dom has since evolved into a new, tech-savy, and dare we say, cool geek.

  1. Book geeks like Twilight? Get real.Have a look at those who read authors like C.S Lewis, Tolkien, Donaldson et al. Not too many of them will have enjoyed, or even read Meyers.

  2. I get the feeling that wasn't made by a geek!

    (I stared at that word so long I was starting to believe Chrome's suggestion that it was spelt wrong!)

    • Harry Potter was mentioned under Book Geeks…

      However, I would like to point out that Twilight doesn't constitue geekiness and agree with Aaron Jackson – what about George Orwell and Isaac Asimov?

  3. This chart is dumb. It just adds "geek" to anything people already do so they can feel super special.
