Wikipedia defines a geek as “a peculiar or otherwise odd person, especially one who is perceived to be overly intellectual” and describes a geek as “one with low social skills, regardless of intelligence.” Geekadelphia is a bunch of geeks blogging (and drawing) about all-that-is-geek in the City of Brotherly Love and beyond. That definition… well, it doesn’t quite sit well with us.
We don’t claim to be peculiar, odd, overly intellectual, lacking in social skills, hermits, hackers, or neophiliacs. We don’t call everyone “n00bs” or “pwn” people on a daily basis. We’ve never watched Beauty & The Geek or Beat The Geeks when they were on television, though we did enjoy Freaks & Geeks. Who didn’t?
We do, however, claim to love video games, computers, pointless-inventions, high budget over-the-top action movies, useless gadgets, comic books, South Park, WoW, Family Guy, Star Wars, and consequently, episodes of South Park and Family Guy that make fun of WoW and Star Wars.
Our goal? To talk about geeky things that interest us and highlight events, stores, and people in Philadelphia who, like us, are geeky.
Welcome to Geekadelphia. Enjoy your stay… n00b.
