The article is interesting, but bothers me on some levels.
One of the things in which I took solace during my long, nerdy school years was that no matter how excluded I was from other social groups, the geeks/nerds/science freaks always accepted me. In fact, our little clique embraced the other outcasts -- we were a motley bunch.
Is it just me, or is the tone of the article somewhat exclusionary? It seems to reinforce that queasy us-vs.-them mentality I was so happy to escape.
Or maybe I'm spending too much time in my secret lair working on my army of killer robots?
