I'm doing this project on Geek Culture for class. Towards that end I created a survey, link below.

http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=7piKZvysQfNvuM_2bLjk_2b1ZQ_3d_3d

Feel free to post this link elsewhere, but I need the results by Wednesday.

On a more conversational tone, what do you think most identifies a Geek or Nerd?

Oh Boy!

That survey sure seems silly.

It lumps nerds and geeks all together! O my!

No offence BunniRabbi, but I think sometimes a researcher needs to know something about the topic before writing the survey!

At work they say, "You are tough on people who write dumb surveys!"

I say, "That's because dumb surveys give us dumb answers!"

So tell me, will you be using a chi-squared goodness-of-fit test to analyze bivariate, cross-tabulated data?

That's Mr Geek 2U!

____ BunniRabbi It seems to me that you want us to become your homework assignment, well I for one resent that as, once you have turned in the assignment you will toss us aside as so much trash.

____ Nope I don't want to be in your petri dish.

Bunni

sorry to want to rain on your parade and all but we here have all seen this "help me out with my homework" c**p a gazillion times before - and my response is likely to be one of the more polite ones...

tell us/show us who/what/why you are a part of this community and people here will bend over all ways to help you... come ask a "what is a geek" for my homework question and you WILL get your a** handed you in a sling

There will be a "post match analysis" debate here after you leave but tbh icncl.... If you are a geek fine, if you are putting us in the lab then FOAD

Sorry to be so blunt but I am sure if you are a genuine geek you will see why some of us are "antsy" and come forward with something that makes us a bit more "giving"

I for one am sick of this shit.... It seems every other week there is some survey or other solicitation geek info. The problem is not the request for info its the mundane banality of it. This is a geek community not a fscking lab. Take yer fscking survey and hit the road.

/me is becoming and angry canuck...

Live long and prosper.
