  • @BrentBrewington Thanks Brent! Love the nerdiness, and you're definitely right. This was more a jokey point than anything. However, while it might not be statistically rigorous the relationship could be indicative of a much broader trend. As the nerds and their once fringe hobby entered into the mainstream, the general acceptance of their other hobbies followed a similar trajectory. We actually wrote an article on this that might shed more light on our thought process behind the slide: http://bit.ly/NerdPost

  • I LOVE THIS. One criticism I have, though, is the chart of adoption of computers vs. readership of comic books. Correlation does not imply causation. What is the causal link between computers and comic books, and how is that relationship more significant than other factors. Statistical commentary by a tried and true Quality nerd :)

  • Which of the types mentioned would note the absence of the 'e' in slide 5? Would it be obsessive of me to point it out?
