Proud to be a Geek - Notes on Why I Love Geeks.


"Ask what if...?" 
Not, "why?"

Believe in redemption.
Believe in bloody retribution.

Have a child-like sense of wonder.
But are in touch with their inner criminal.

Have traveled to worlds others only scoff at.
Understand humanity a bit better.
Look up, instead of down.

Are voracious readers and watchers.
Have a wicked sense of humor.

Know smart is sexy.

Wear black.
Mock folks wearing black.
Look good in black.

Feelings are easily hurt.
Don't care what you think.

Know the true spirit of community.
Have loaded Kindles.
Have tattoos based on obscure, but non-hipster references.

Write the books you love.
Respect the source material.
Make the movies you really like.

Designed the device/computer you're reading this on.
Have a secret special skill.

Got us to the moon.
Will get us to Mars.

Are passionate
Are Seekers.
Are cool.

Proud to be a  geek,
