While we won’t see the Revenge of the Nerds remake that commanded a giant space at last year’s San Diego Comic Con, that doesn’t mean there’s no market for movies about lovable losers.

Slashdot has a comment thread going about a Cool Tech Zone article on the “psychology of fanboys.” Also check out the discussion on whether scientific consensus is a threat to democracy.

Danny Strong (aka Jonathan the nerd from Buffy)
and director Joe Nussbaum, who pretty much got into Hollywood on the basis of his short film, George Lucas in Love.
That’s geek cred for ya.
