geekdom

ok, so this week, myself and 3 other guys from the office went down to Dallas for the Astricon conference…

now, there are quite a few geeks here….actually, one could argue it is a geek fest..

so that led to several discussions debating the differences mainly between geeks and nerds…

over on cracker's blog there is a thread about this very subject

however, a little bit of homework led me to the following revelations:

according to wikipedia, a nerd is anyone who pursues academic and intellectual interests which could result in the expense of soocial skills….

also according to wikipedia, a geek is anyone who is fascinated, perhaps obesssively, by obscure or very specific areas of knowledge and imagination, usually electronic or virtual in nature…

taking these things into consideration…i would probably be only able to define myself as a nerdy geek…

some day, possibly in the near future, we might also publish one of our new games invented on the way down here in the car on the 5 hour drive….

the name of it was "How much would it take….?"….

interesting one that was….can hardly wait for the ride home tonight…
