Join Our Comic-Con Nerd Safari!
By Kyle Hill on August 1, 2014
Geeks and nerds are fascinating creatures. They don’t mimic other organisms to escape predation or for camouflage, they mimic organisms they admire. They have a tendency to form long lines without adequate food or water just for a chance to be in the presence of other geeks. And if you’re a naturalist like me, there’s no better place to study these shy creatures than at San Diego Comic-Con–a yearly migration to an ocean congregation.
The video above documents my first journey to this gathering of geeks, including what I learned, what kinds of geeks were there, and the other hunter I met along the way.
I think next year I’ll bring a bigger net.
