The word on nerds

January 10, 2009

Mike Fabio at the Google Lunar X PRIZE recently polled “space nerds” to find out what online media they use. I don’t know about you but this English major finds he prefers the same tools. Yikes! But it’s a good thing. Check it out on Fabio’s blog, it’s an entertaining read. Meanwhile here’s a summary:

  • Blogging: WordPress, followed closely by Blogger
  • Microblogging/Lifestreaming: Twitter, followed closely by Facebook status update
  • Video: YouTube, hands down
  • Photos: Facebook, followed closely by Flickr
  • Social Bookmarking: Digg, hands down.
  • Music: Pandora, followed closely by
  • Social Networks: Facebook, hands down, though LinkedIn didn’t do badly

    Hey, just because you’re an English major doesn’t mean you can’t also be a space nerd 😉

    I’m a music major after all!

    Worse, this psych major uses all those as well, except DIGG, but may start using DIGG or…

    I prefer to think of myself as a geek, using the newer convention that geeks are nerds who know how to bathe and use soap.

    Geek is good!
