Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There's never been a better time to be a geek. After decades, if not centuries of persecution, ridicule and never, ever getting the girl, geeks are hot. They are scientists, programmers, artists, musicians, actors, videogramers, skateboard and architects. They have risen above unimaginative educational systems, hostile social environments, and conventional employers to develops the most liberating, global, inventive and democratic culture on the planet. They are geeks and their time has come. Geek Chic begins by tracing the rise of Geek culture particularly in movies, television, music and media and goes on to present an extensive timeline of geek history over the millennia with short biographical sketches of O.G.'s (original geeks), such as Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Edison, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates and Spike Jonze. Author Neil Feineman was responsible for launching many hard hitting pop-culture magazines over the years including Beach Culture, RayGun, and extreme sports magazine Gravity.
