Nerd Lunch: The Web Series

Nerd Lunch: The Web Series

You gotta check out NERD LUNCH: THE WEB SERIES!  These funtastic videos are produced by folks here in my own hometown, and include things of interest to nerds and fans of lunch everywhere!  The second episode was released just yesterday.  Each episode runs about 11 minutes and is well worth your time.  Check ‘em out and tell ‘em Shag sent you!

While you’re at it, check out the websites for the co-hosts — C.T. of NERD LUNCH and Savannah of THE TALLY TYPE.

Now, they use the word “nerd”, whereas I typically use the word “geek”.  This is a common disagreement amongst “our people”.  There is a diagram I love to use to distinguish between the various “nerd” categories.  As defined by the diagram below, I fall firmly in the “geek” category.    Where do you fall?

Geek vs Nerd vs Dork vs Dweeb

    Thanks for the promotion, Shag! We have had fun making the videos and I’m looking forward to doing more.

    I love that Venn diagram. It probably best defines the differences. Using that, I probably fall more in the “geek” crossover, but I had already staked my claim on the word “nerd” before seeing it. Really, the differences are minute. I think everyone in this big family can get along.

    Glad to see the Nerd Lunch web series getting some promotion. And excellent Venn diagram! Guess I tend more towards geek in this example since I usually operate in polite society with no one being the wiser. But man, tell ONE person at work you’re going to Star Wars Weekends and you will never hear the end of it!

    Sue I faked it for quite a few years too, but I think I evolved a bit. Transferring from engineering to the sales department, I was forced to learn a few social skills. But I’m out of the geek closet now.
