Diagram of Geek Culture

Rather than a formal taxonomy, this diagram by Ibrahim Evsan divides geek culture into activities, obsessions, social communities, terms, idols, and types. Its primary flaw is that it does not take cross-breeding into account. Larger version at the link.

Well, he didn't actually group things where they connect logically: Mac & PC should branch right off from Computer Geek; Joss Whedon's projects should branch from his name, etc.

It's "LEGO" or "LEGO bricks": Not "Legos"
Never "Legos"
"Legos" is like saying "Heinzs" or "Kleenexs" or "Sonys" or "Apples"
It's incorrect to say "have you seen my Sonys?" just as it is with "Let me show you my Legos"
