CBS has more shows about geniuses than any other network ever -- forensic and detective shows, threat-of-the-week shows, The Big Bang Theory -- at least a dozen programs, dwarfing the number of CBS shows about idiots (Big Brother).

Now, NYCC is all glitz, glamor, and cosplay and in the end, all we really wanted was the NY Comic Con to be as big as the San Diego one. So congrats NYCC you made it! You are just as big and impossible to get into as your brethren.

Every day I'm reminded that we help people put food on the table and get a job and a place to live. Maybe we have changed the world, seriously. Sure, this isn't the usual approach in Silicon Valley or anywhere else, but I'm a nerd, and a nerd's gotta do what a nerd's gotta do.

Anyone who has ever met me would attest to the fact that I am a very logical person. This clearly does not lend itself to highly romantic ideas like "love at first sight". If you are like me, then you can use Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) principles to guide you!

Nerd Masculinity: 'They Won't Give it Up Without a Fight'

Ravishly | Posted 03.08.2015 | Women

It's time for "nerds" to admit the things that make us "nerdy" -- social exclusion, unusual interests, atypical learning development -- don't erase the privileges we also have. That LGBTQ people, people of color, and, yes, women are all vulnerable to those things -- and have to deal with a pile of other issues as well.

At midnight on Sunday, whoops it's already Monday! we said our goodbyes. Backlit by a spectral Super Moon, our shadows stretched long. Hugs all around, even though most of us had just met, in the dark, in a burned out flat in Angeles National Forest.

All weather talk is good talk as far as I am concerned. It is also human talk. Checking the forecast on multiple platforms is an American pastime, but staying around to discuss the weather on any platform is a different thing altogether.

Dear Progressives, We're Not Doing It Right

When a science fiction convention is more affirming, less body-shaming, more welcoming and less sneering than a conference with 3,000 plus "progressives," we're doing something wrong. I loved Netroots Nation in Detroit this year, but we need to do better as a community.

I'm into a whole slew of traditionally-geeky things like Star Trek and Macs and Monty Python and the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. But while I check many of the geek boxes, I can't help but feel like the label still doesn't suit me.

No Labels Please

I think we need to understand that beneath the different skin colors, hair colors, languages, body sizes, shapes and our thoughts, we are all made the same way. Why, as humans, do we put a label on someone and assume that the person we are labeling is just that?
