Geeks now rule the world

July 20, 2010

David Fincher just made a movie that tells the story of how one of the world’s largest media companies came into being, Facebook.

It’s a celebration of the rise of geek power. What’s interesting here is how the geek has moved from the meek and mild background character that survives only on their intellect, to Geek 3.0 as manifested by Zuckerberg, who won’t let anything get in the way of his ambition.

Perhaps the movie will serve as a PSA; providing the inspiration for thousands of high school kids to become Geek 3.0s by studying math, computing and science and provide just what America needs to maintain its innovative edge.
