Forgot to mention... I've posted some ramblings on Johnny Laird's blog on the topic of “relating to the geek and the radical”. I think I may have even made some sense...
"...The only way to effectively relate to others is to share with them something… some commonality… that allows you to be parties on an equal footing.Go to Johnny's blog for the full post.

Grateful to Johnny for the opportunity and, more importantly, the challenge. However, please note, I did not receive any money for the complements I showered him with.
