Geeks Are the New Rock Stars

It's good to be a geek these days, according to a recent survey from Modis. Rather than being depicted as social misfits, geeks are now perceived by the general population as highly intelligent, resourceful professionals.

It's hard to get taken seriously when people keep associating us with this kind of thing.

For what it's worth, I have this image printed out and hanging over my desk in the IT department. Gogo gadget self-fulfilling stereotype.
