A Look Back At Speak Out With Your Geek Out
Posted By Nancy On November 6, 2011 @ 11:02 am In Blogs | No Comments
Speak Out With Your Geek Out  week has come and gone. Created by Monica Valentinelli, it was an Internet-wide phenomenon, prompting hundreds of people from all over the world to submit their tales of wonderful geekdom. I missed contributing my own geek-out post, which is a shame because there are a lot of things I geek about. From horror movies of all kinds (zombie movies and 80s cult being among my favorites), to Buffy and Angel, comic books, genre fiction, Anime, and gory foreign films. The list goes on.
So I wanted to take a look back at the Geek Week because I think SOWYGO sparked a discussion that was needed. Geeks are sometimes made fun of in media, and often in classrooms and the workplace. It doesn’t just stop there. Being different means, to some in this world, being stomped down at any time. So it’s important for people to come together and tell the world that enough is enough. The fact of the matter is that being different – being a geek, a dork, a nerd or what have you – is cool. It always has been, always will be. Take a clue from The Breakfast Club.
Here are a couple of the SOWYGO posts that I really enjoyed:
There were numerous blog posts to choose from, and the above is only a brief sampling. Overall, I think SOWYGO would make for a great annual event, or even seasonal. Because geeking-out isn’t just a once-in-a-year kind of thing.
