Geeks redux [Dec. 4th, 2003|10:45 pm]

[Current Mood |dorkydorky]

If comment numbers are a sign of success, then my alltime number one entry was the one on how to stop being a loser. (Followed by my post on menstruation, but a brief contemplation of possible corollaries made me decide I'd really rather not know. But anyway...)

This being the internet, a place inhabited both by geeks and by people who have way too much time on their hands, not surprisingly I am not the only person to comment on this issue. ls56 brought to my attention this terrific article about the social myths under which geeks themselves labor. Definitely worth the read.

That was a good read. I see an awful lot of that in friends of mine, and I see a good chunck of #4 in myself. Thanks for that.

Good article. I'm definitely a geek, but I don't think I carry a full load of all five fallacies, fortunately.

Hi, I had to re-name my journal. Can you re-add me please? My latest entry will tell you who I was, as well as the reason I changed. Thanks! :)
