The Evolution of the Geek [infographic]

First off, there are not enough infographics out there about Dungeons and Dragons, will someone send me one if they find a good one please? Second, screw this infographic. It started off really well with where the term “geek” came from, good deal! Then continues over to Geekus prime and onto computer geek; nothing is said about the computer geek, which is a very important geek, because he is what the internet geek is based upon!

Also, I am very annoyed by the book geek as I’m sure others are. Harry Potter, Narnia and Twilight are so general, all walks of life read those books, and the Lord of the Rings are perhaps more “geeky” but still very popular. What about Sci-fi books? Or old mediaeval times books? — So much more of a geek fest genre.

The artist got a little lazy on the “geek Chic” because these are not variants of geek chic, a theatre geek doesn’t dress that way to be ironic — a theatre hipster might. A food geek doesn’t dress that way either. These are more just hobbies people have. These are all things really upsetting me. I wouldn’t have had to complain about all this if someone had just made a decent D&D infographic.

By the way, I am playing my first game of Dungeons and Dragons today, and I cannot wait. Any advice will be appreciated.

Kids These Days [Infographic]

Get off my lawn with your iPads, ya hooligans! If you know kids these days, you’ll know that they just love technology, let me tell you what! In fact, there are so many different tools to utilize, it’s hard to even know what kinds to invest in. Cell phone, iphone, ipad, nexus, android, mac, pc, etc. It’s a bit boggling.

This infographic, done by a local college, investigates what percentages of Freshman students are bringing in what. Granted, this is a smaller, private college, so the results may be skewed from your own, but nevertheless illuminates what technologies are being utilized the most in preparation for BECOMING AN ADULT BY GOING TO COLLEGE (echo). In all seriousness though, technologies really are shaping the modern job market and what is possible in global communication, as well as education.

The top-most percentages correspond with the overall campus population. The smallest number of these happens to be desktop computers. This isn’t surprising due to the popular use of laptops for portability and for taking notes in class; but more and more I’ve found that tablets are becoming very popular for this particular task. It’d be awesome to know what percentage would prefer taking notes on tablets as opposed to laptops…

All in all it’s a great age to live in where media, art, and knowledge can be so easily communicated across our planet. The future of education really does lie in the digital realm.
