I had been trying to figure out how to talk about a question that had been bugging me lately. The question: Is geek culture just a culture of consumerism?
Then I saw this video, as Felicia Day introduces Geek and Sundry season 2. And she helped frame it a bit.
We are more than what we consume, more than what is advertised to us, more than physical things made. But we do still consume culture… so I suppose a couple of things.
- What is consumerism?
- What does geek culture consume?
- What might this consumption look like in the future?
- What are some pitfalls that this future has?
So, let’s take this idea, and take it into the future: Geek Culture and Consumerism!
