The Nerds are Rising

I was intrigued recently by a suggestion that us Nerds (or Geeks/Dorks as appropriate) are on the increase and are in fact the dominant power in the world. This might be inspired by the fact that one of the most powerful men in the world is a self confessed technology nerd. It may also have something to do with the fact that it has become de rigueur for Hollywood stars to declare their geekiness and admit to playing D&D.

Anyway here's a YouTube video of a very inspirational speech given by Jim Kakalios. Jim was the science advisor for the Watchmen movie, and recently wrote a book called The Physics of Superheroes so he's definitely one of us. This is for every gamer that has been made to feel inadequate or embarrassed by their hobby. It's time to be proud of who you are...
