geek social fallacies

Michael Suileabhain-Wilson has written about 5 geek social fallacies that he has observed. I wouldn’t say I’m an über geek, but I can see myself having some of these tendencies and it’s interesting to have them articulated and open to analyzation.

  1. Holy Frijoles! This article describes a couple we know in vivid detail! They can’t understand for the life of them why we don’t care for some of their other friends and why we don’t want to do everything together. I’ve got to send this link to my husband.

  2. In my old ward there was this group I hung out with that had a bad case of GSF 1 & 4. Finally one day several people (including myself) made it a point to loose the annoying guy. He still made it a point to pry, spy and invite himself to stuff. Boy, we were jerks.

  4. So in other words… I can comment on here stating everything I hate about this site and you, and although you won’t consider me your friend, you’ll make sure I can still comment?

  5. Do you know if this is posted anywhere else anymore? The website seems to be defunct and I can’t find it doing searches.
