Geek anthropology

It's a few years old, but this essay on geek social fallacies is far from out of date. Sadly.

[Also, in my own personal taxonomy these people would be referred to as "nerds", but the points still stand. From another article on the site I get this:

"When I say geeks, I'm using the term in its non-pejorative sense as a blanket term for all those good folks who dig various forms of speculative fiction (fantasy, science fiction, comics, roleplaying games, genre movies, etc.)"]
