This week we love geeks. In a recent interview in The Kansas City News, John Hodgman (arguably a posterboy for geekdom) offers up:
I think that we are necessarily moving toward a geek culture. The health of our society is going to rely on information technology. It’s going to rely on a familiarity with math and science and technology. Geekery in general is founded on questioning and proof via analysis of the actual world and not the world as we wish it to be.
So if you are still looking for a last minute Halloween costume inspiration, might we suggest dressing up as your favorite geek. If you are interested in moving the world forward, it’s a costume you just might not want to take off.
