Always Watching thinks so – they named him one of their ten most badass geeks in film and TV:
It’s strange to think that one of the world’s most iconic and badass movie villains would ultimately be revealed as a major geek during his childhood years. Little Anakin Skywalker was an engineering prodigy, capable of building or repairing anything tech-related, including his own podracer and even C-3PO (albeit naked).
Old-school web classic Fray has recently returned as a print quarterly, and the theme for their second issue is “Geeks aren’t Nerds.” They’re looking for writers, artists, and there’s even a storytelling survey for the less wordy. Deadline is March 31st, eek!
Far be it for MSN to miss out on that great trend of making lists. They celebrate the new TV season with a look at TV’s Greatest Geeks.
Apparently, geeks have been very recent. Only two nods to geeks of yore. Please direct all whining to their message boards.
