Evolution of the geek
An interesting infographic over at Geeks are Sexy about the evolution of the Geek. I actually find myself in several of the categories and don’t know if this actually conveys the true overall Geek. I know I fit in to the Computer Geek, the Internet Geek, sort of a Book Geek, the Tech Geek, the D&D Geek, a little into the Comic Book Geek, both the Star Wars and Star Trek Geek as well as the Video Game Geek and a little into the Food Geek categories. Yeah, I know, that’s a lot. But when you think about it, most geek’s out there fall into one prime category and many sub-categories.
They did leave quite a few different geek classes out however; to include them all would make this graphic much larger and almost impossible to read.
Where do you fit in all of this?
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.
