Again: the Geektest

Every now and then I take the GeekTest. The first time was in 2006; I scored 32,34714% – Total Geek. Then, May 2008 my geekability had advanced to 36% – Major Geek!
Yesterday, after a few days of hard word, I felt burned out and bored; so I thought: let’s take the GeekTest to cheer me up. Guess what: I scored 38.2643% – still Major Geek, but I’m making progress. So I think I’m worth the button:

Back to my cave! I’m running for the status of Super Geek – ?45%!

  • The Aesthetics and Beauty of Knowledge

    Shih was the opposite of facts and raw information; shih was the elegance of knowledge, the insight and skill to organize knowledge into meaningful patterns. As an artist chooses colours or light to make her pictures, a master of shih chooses textures of knowledge – various ideas, myths, abstractions, and theories – to create a way of seeing the world. The aesthetics and beauty of knowledge – this was shih.

    – David Zindell, The Broken God, 1993

  • Geek Attitude

    The attitude thing is about flexibility, portability, creativity, sociability and jamming (ran out of suitable “ity” words!). It’s about improvising – in the practical and musical senses of the word; not getting tangled in boundaries and the “right” way to do things.
    Definitely the only way to travel.
