Sunday Sites 39: Nerds

Jumping off Wedsnesday’s post on the problem of nerd-bashing and its effects, I thought having a Sunday Sites devoted to that topic would be appropriate. Nerd Self-Tests for diagnosis are not a new thing. There are hundreds of them online, many of them give insight into the stereotype. My score is straight through the roof. Guide to Dating: Why Nerds Aren’t as Bad as they are Thought to Be. Shyness is usually associated with nerdity. Read on. A treasure trove of nerd humor and quotes. Why Nerds are Unpopular by Paul Graham The Urban Dictionary gives us some excellent information on the topic. A lengthy and excellent interview on nerds and the discrimination that they face. A book review discussing nerdiness. Philp Guo on Popularity and Nerdiness. One of my favorite bloggers.

That’s it for this week. Check out the Facebook page for My Back Pages if you want to start a discussion.
