Submission + - Nerds vs. Geeks -- A Fair Definition?

MacDaffy writes: "Former Bush administration counter-terrorism and cyber-security tsar (Clarke says the TS is for "top-security") was a guest on Comedy Central's Colbert Report last week (01/17/07). In response to Colbert asking if Clarke had been Bush's "chief security nerd", Clarke corrected Colbert: "Chief Geek... geeks get it done; nerds don't." Fair assessment? Any comment, hackers?"

Submission + - Tower Records Goes Under...

MacDaffy writes: "The Hollywood Reporter chronicles the demise of music merchandising giant Tower Records. If I were a music industry executive, this would be a cold bucket of water in my face; it's time for them to change their view of online music. That's because it's quickly becoming the industry's largest source of income. Any other theories?"
