Closet Slashdotters: The 'Intellectually Curious' 394

An anonymous reader writes "Slashdotters are certified geeks, but apparently there's a bunch of other people out there who are very interested in science, technology, politics and culture but they don't want to be known as geeks.

Intellectually, I'm curious what that makes the rest of them."
