Sacramento Geeks Unite!

A Collective of Fans, Fanatics and Aficiandos

What's a Sacramento Geek?

The online dictionary offers this definition of "geek":  "A person who is single-minded or accomplished in scientific or technical pursuits but is felt to be socially inept."

Well, I beg to differ! 

OK, yeah, we may indeed be accomplished scientifically or technically, and sure, some of our fanatic interests may seem single-minded, AND, ok, maybe, sometimes, some of our social skills don't always lead us to the voted "Most Popular," (LOL)...

*BUT*

....my experiences have been that geeks can be very friendly, fun and good people to know, largely because:

1) Geeks are highly intelligent, and thus capable of fascinating conversations, and creative ways of having fun;

2) Geeks tend to be very passionate people.  Their love for their favorite show/subject/thing often stems from that inner passion;. 

3) While Geeks do often have a favorite thing they're fanatical about, they usually also have a wide variety of other interests, and are usually very OPEN-minded!  

4) In our current technology-rich, multimedia-saturated world, Geeks rule!
