revenge of the nerds

The Next Generation

At a con over the weekend, a new mother asked Wil Wheaton to tell her infant daughter why it’s awesome to be a nerd. If you read my blog, you’re probably a nerd of some type,(1) so take the next four minutes of your life to listen to his response.

“It’s not about what you love, but how you love it…it doesn’t matter what it is, the way you love it and the way you find people who love it the way you do, is what makes it awesome to be a nerd.”

Amazing. He’s one hundred percent correct. I have nothing more to add.

Thanks Wil. Sure, yeah, you were in Star Trek…but the Force is with you.

  1. What with all the Star Wars and Skyrim and footnotes going on around here.
