Something very strange is happening in the world of technological anthropology. Videogame geeks are at the throats of their Computer Nerd siblings.
Perhaps maybe it isn’t quite so strange after all. After all, these folks, my bretheren (and sisteren?) are infamous for carrying on all sorts of tech driven feuds. Apple VS. Microsoft. Windows VS. Mac. Windows VS Linux.
You see, two of my favorite television networks are merging. Actually, merging isn’t exactly accurate. TechTV was put up for sale a few months ago (as early as August 2003?)by Paul Allen and Comcast Corporation ponyed up the $300 million or so to buy it. Stated plans are to combine G4 (wholly owned by Comcast) with TechTV.
Well, there probably isn’t any good way to stop the two camps from flaming each other. They’ll get tired of it sooner or later, hopefully sooner. So, until then, flame on my geeky nerdy bros and sisses, and get it out of your respective systems.
