I really meant to respond in grander fashion to Tom’s post on alternate status hierarchies, as he’s tapping into an ongoing discussion that is at its heart about geeks’ social and media engagement. I wrote a comment on his post while in Seattle, and suggested I might blog about it further. Then I flew back, started playing catch-up, and … well, we all know this story. At least I think I can still stand by my original comment to him. Anyway, I wanted to direct your attention to it in case you felt like contributing at all.
