Wil Wheaton on Why Being a Nerd is Awesome

Inspirational speech. Via

During my panel, I was asked by a young woman to explain to her newborn daughter, Violet, why it was awesome to be a nerd. As it turns out, I’ve been having that conversation with my sons for their entire lives, so I spoke from the heart and told her.

I’m very lucky in that every now and then, I get to say something and people will listen to me. It’s an incredible gift from the great elder gods that I treasure, and respect, so I do my best to honour it when I get to use it. This video went pseudoviral yesterday while I was traveling home, so I suppose you could say that I got to be Dad of the Internet for a little bit, which is kind of neat.

He is a professional geek. Love my nerds and geeks. ❤

    I do love Wil Wheaton. Fark reveres him as a god, which is kind of a neat subculture within their forums/threads.
