Geekdom is not a club; it’s a destination, open to anyone who wants to put in the time and effort to travel there. And if someone lacks the opportunity to get there, we geeks should help in any way we can. Take a new friend to a meetup or convention. Donate your old games, movies, comics, and toys. Be welcoming. Sharing your enthusiasm is part of being a geek.1
This is such a great post by John Siracusa. Geekdom should be inclusive and it’s up to us geeks/nerds to make and keep it that way. Nobody should ever feel like they can’t be a ”true” geek because they arrived late to something.
