'The Road to Geekdom'

John Siracusa, on what it means to be a geek:

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.

A delightful piece, poignant and well-articulated. Typical Siracusian prose.
