Geeking Out

According to this “Marketplace” report, it’s International Geek Pride Day – a day for celebrating all those awkward kids from high school who are now the patient IT crowd, reverse-engineering your computer in time for the big presentation, and the kindly reference librarian who divined the search terminology that gave you the supporting facts for that big presentation in the first place.

So, take a geek to lunch today and celebrate.

As Alexandra Robbins, author of The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth, notes, you never know: You may find you’re dining with the next J.K. Rowling, Lady Gaga or the person who creates the next whiz-bang social media channel.
