Previously derided, computer nerds are now our industry titans in many ways. Comic book superheroes are Hollywood idols with entire movie sagas. The internet is everywhere around us and it has merged inextricably with our real life.
Clearly, geeks have known ahead of time to accumulate 21st century experience, a culture that others ignore but from which we can all learn something important.
Geek Wisdom is an interesting book that takes as its gospel about 200 of the most powerful and oft-cited quotes from movies (“Where we’re going, we don’t need roads”), television (“Now we know—and knowing is half the battle”), literature (“All that is gold does not glitter”), games, science, the Internet and more.
Now these beloved pearls of modern culture have been meticulously selected and in-depth explained by a diverse team of hardcore nerds.
Some of the citations were are recognizable even to the less “experts”, others, less known, are still important to know and pleasant to discover.
Definitely a great read for any geek out there or anyone wanting a gift for a geeky person in their life.
