Evolution of the Geek

Happy Monday all – I wanted to start off the week with a fun infographic I’d seen on Mashable that displays the evolution of the geek. Rather than reproduce it here (partly because I’m not sure what the copyright situation is) head on over to Mashable for a look.

I love these maps of geek culture. I’ve posted about this sort of thing before when I asked, “What is a geek?” I think they show the breadth of geekiness, with sci-fi, film, book, car and science geeks all getting a look in. It also sort of gives me a bit of a boost to think that there are a heck of a lot more subjects I could cover on Geek-Speak!

Have a think about it and, if you like, tell us in the comments: what kind of geek are you?
