The Tech Geek is an undervalued and misunderstood sort in the offline world, often found perusing the shelves of PC World or drooling over Dungeons and Dragons. We all know the kind; every office relies on one while every classroom holds one in the making. Take your pick from this gawky lot if you need a reminder.
Yet with a click of a mouse or the tap of a screen, enter the virtual world and it is clear to all that the Tech Geek is King. To celebrate all things weird and whizzkid, we declare this week’s Friday Links blog an ‘Ode to the Nerds of the Net’.
On your journey to the centre of the digital earth, why not travel in style with your very own Geek-mobile? The less ostentatious amongst us might prefer an old banger and an artistic pile of dirt – rolling up at Comic Con won’t have quite the same impact we know, but at least there will be spare change for a human washing machine to keep the dust at bay.
Perhaps you’re so much of a Tech Geek that an addiction to Facebook makes a baby mop look like too much effort? If you’re not too busy stalking friends or ‘liking’ videos of your nephew spewing during choir practice (what a champ!) then maybe this incredibly stat-tastic Facebook infograph is more up your street.
Now don’t get us wrong, here at MRM we have been absorbed all week by our new iPhones and we willingly admit to a bit of smartphone geekiness, but even we almost spilt our Apple water when we checked out this particularly fanatic group of boffins. To quote one inked-up T Mobile user’s back, “OMFG” indeed.
