There have been geeks since time immemorial (some Neanderthal, fascinated by things that could roll, invented the wheel, you know!). Socrates and Plato, our forefathers, spent their time deeply contemplating what it was to be a geek . Galileo, Da Vinci and Michelangelo expanded our understanding of the geek without and the geek within. Darwin showed us how nerdy our ancestors were – really? swinging through trees? please!. In the mid-1900s Stan Lee came along and made the geek super, adding ‘spidey-sense’ and gamma-radiation. Nowadays we have Bill Gates, Miyamoto and Steve Jobs, among others.
What this proves is who’s at the top of the food chain – the tech nerds, gamers and comic fans! We have foreseen the zombie apocalypse – we watched Dawn of the Dead and Shaun of the Dead. We know all about the dangers of getting infected with Rage and the Army of the 12 Monkeys. So though they call us misunderstood, shout dork as we walk by and treat us as social outcasts, we will have the last laugh. Reference Revenge of the Nerds, Wargames and Scream, if you missed them. The geek shall prevail and in the end, rule. The current President of the United States utilized the power of ‘teh internets’ to win office. History has been moving in our direction since the first written word (again, here, who do you think wrote the first word? a Sumerian jock?), it’s just taken this long for the masses to reach the right conclusion.
