Nerd pride
Jump to user comments
body The Nerd Pride movement, modeled on the Gay Pride
movement, was started at MIT by Professors Gerald Sussman
and Hal Abelson. Nerd pride paraphernalia includes baseball
hats, buttons and - of course - pocket protectors.
"My idea is to present an image to children that it is good to
be intellectual, and not to care about the peer pressures to
be anti-intellectual. I want every child to turn into a nerd
- where that means someone who prefers studying and learning
to competing for social dominance".
