Geek Elixir The essence of geek, secretly coveted by the children of cool for decades. ‘Geek’ has slowly through the ages forged its own fate, etched its mark in the tree of social stature, To be seen and remembered for centuries and worlds to come. Geek lives.. through the hardest and most defamatory situations, name calling and social alienation yet ‘Geek’ survived and grew stronger Geek is here and will continue till Geekdom come. The earth we inhabit has changed a great deal, as geek is now morphing into something new, from a social sub culture scorned and detested by many to a fashion statement / entity of some sort Geek being a the new sub culture of the new millenium. The latest tech gadgets, using a slew of technical terms in everyday jargon, the development of fashionable devices ‘a platinum thumb drive – why?”. This fact and trends leads me to believe that geeks are responsible for the future of this here earth and any other we may inhabit. Our perception shapes this ugly world into what it is and will be, and thus be said that we hold true power. Good luck to my friend and fellow blogger Taylor with this his latest project.
