I resemble this book

I was fascinated and frustrated by Being Geek in almost equal measures. It was very interesting to check off the geek attitudes I have - and the ones I don't have. It was fascinating to see him deconstruct 'system thinking' (the world is a system with rules one can deduce and use to predict and understand situations) and frustrating to see him point out that it's a fallacy and then act as if it was true for much of the rest of the book. What's it about? Go read my review over on ZDNet...
