Last night I attended a seminar on how to apply for a very competitive, high stakes, complicated grant. This grant is so difficult to complete that just being able to finish it is part of the attrition process. Needless to say in order to fit in with the rest of the 100s of ambitions potential high-brow candidates I wore my big nerdy glasses.
Sitting there looking around I realized egg-heads don’t wear big nerdy glasses anymore… Hipsters do.
Remember the original egg-head?
Well my friends, not only did Einstein figure out relativity, and all that stuff about mass and energy (see. Stevie), but he set the template for Hipsterism.
I had a moment of visual-identity crisis, when I realized I wasn’t actually a geek or a nerd. So I tweeted into the universe while sandwiched between a well groomed young woman in a salmon colored dress and young man in a pressed dress shirt.
Diana Cage tweeted back this Venn diagram to me:
While this handy diagram my not address the dress-code on the dork-geek continuum, it does put the psychology into perspective. And P to the S, being Hipster is totally douchie.
