In high school we knew — someday we’d have our revenge.
(They even made a movie about it.)
Now we rule the world. Nerds and geeks created your computer and your smart phone and your mpg player and Facebook and Twitter and all the technology that today, you can’t live without.
It’s even cool to be a geek. Geeks are sexy. Geeks are reluctant spies like “Chuck” or good-looking renegade space captains like Mal Reynolds in “Firefly” or scientists taking their geekness to new levels like Sheldon on “Big Bang Theory.”
And geek fans? They’re the coolest by far. Everybody wants them — movies, television shows, cartoons, comic books — you name it. They are the most sought after population on the planet…or so it would appear this week.
Comic Con, the comic book conference that up until a few years ago people only attended under fake names or the cover of darkness, is now the biggest show on the planet. Major celebrities are in San Diego as we speak promoting their new movie, TV show, or animated series…and I think they still do comic books, too.
It’s insane. I am so jealous that I’m not there….
With my people.
Someone…get me a t-shirt?
