Some people thing that geek culture is toxic and count me among those who feel this way. I just love it.Because of this nerd culture consumerism that has basically engulf the whole planet, businesses are thriving today and selling a lot of stuff to geeks, nerds and whoever wants to be with it today, that’s includes everyone ’cause everything has gone tech from mom and pop businesses to banks and corporations.
So if anyone should ask “why is being a geek/nerd cool now?” tell them it’s the new way of life.
