 I Am a Geek! - A Message from the Society for Geek AdvancementMay 12, 2009 by Miss Cellania |

From the Society for Geek Advancement, which is not only a sort of club, it’s a movement to put the power of geekiness to work to improve the world. Buy a t-shirt and help fund Room to Read, a charity that builds schools, libraries, and computer labs for children in Third World countries.

Be Proud: Geek Pride Day Is May 25th

nerd pride.jpg

That's right folks, Geek Pride Day 2009 is rapidly approaching. We must make plans. I'm thinking beer and ticker tape. With maybe some comics and video games thrown in for good measure.

Nerd Pride Day, or Geek Pride Day, is an initiative which claims the right of every person to be a nerd or a geek. Of Spanish origin ("día del orgullo friki" in Spain), it is celebrated nowadays among Spanish frikis (an equivalent of geeks and nerds).

This day is celebrated on May 25 since 2006, celebrating the premiere of the first Star Wars movie in 1977.

So, what do you all want to do? Parade? If so, I want to be on a float -- I've never gotten to do that before. Anybody good with paper papier-mâché? I'm thinking me riding a dinosaur crushing a robot. Also, if the dinosaur could have realistic orifices that would be, you know, the only reason I suggested this project in the first place.

Thanks to matty, who stands proudly as a geek. Also, a little hunchbacked from sitting in front of the computer all day and night.
