Wil Wheaton - Why it's awesome to be a nerd

Wil Weaton, Sauropod Vertebra Picture of the Week, Jul 31, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I used to hate Wesley Crusher (still do - we would play games like "that could have killed Wesley Crusher" while watching Star Trek). And I wasn't happy Wil Weaton gathered a gazillion followers online just for being Wil Weaton. But, I like what he has done with his fame, not doing the obvious and making movies or another televsion show, but rather supporting the new and offbeat, and making videos like this one: "We come from all over, in some cases all over the world, so that we can be around people who love things that we love the way that we love them, and that's why being a nerd is awesome. And done't ever let anybody tell you that that think that you love is a thing that you can't love. Don't ever let anyone tell you you can't love that, that's for boys, you have to love this because you're a girl. You find the things that you love and you love them the most that you can."
