Welcome to [geekulture].
A journal about culture, technology and the interactions in-between.
Maintained by self-professed geek, brian leery (New-fangled since 1982). Usually known for being involved in the Singapore indie music circuit, marketing as a profession, making excuses about not writing enough, being a general nuisance at the bar and one-off quips about the state of ‘things’.
I enjoy music, art, film, design, technology, games, culture, communication & creativity and write about these.
geek : The word geek is a slang term for odd or non-mainstream people, with different connotations ranging from “a computer expert or enthusiast” to “a person heavily interested in a hobby”, with a general pejorative meaning of “a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, esp[ecially] one who is perceived to be overly intellectual”.

culture : In the 20th century, “culture” emerged as a central concept in anthropology, encompassing the range of human phenomena that cannot be attributed to genetic inheritance. Specifically, the term “culture” in American anthropology had two meanings: (1) the evolved human capacity to classify and represent experiences with symbols, and to act imaginatively and creatively; and (2) the distinct ways that people living in different parts of the world classified and represented their experiences, and acted creatively.

We hope that you enjoy your stay and leave some polite messages.
[geekulture] was started by brian leery in late 2010, and is part of the litford network, a concept created to deal with the fractal nature of our online personalities. You can read about that dreary stuff here or about brian’s personal misadventures at harmless? bananas! He also ran singularity industries, a blog that discussed the present, to prepare for the future that ironically stopped getting updated in January 2011
