In this week’s meeting, Kelly Guimont of the TUAW Talkcast and The Mac Observer shares how frustrating it is to deal with tech support calls on both the giving and receiving end, why she's too tired of being outraged at every misaligned comment due to gender stereotyping, how surviving childhood as a geek was a valuable experience, and that all of adult society still ends up becoming a microcosm of high school dynamics anyways.
In addition, we discuss how the usage of plot devices separates Star Wars and Star Trek fans, how nerds are heavily allegiant towards the canon over anything else, why catering to the hardcore fans usually results in a shitty product for everyone, how our yearning for nostalgia and familiarity drives box office success, and why we'll always view the current world negatively in comparison to how it was during our teenage years.
It concludes with Kelly completing step five by acknowledging that she feels entitled to a great Star Wars sequel and accepting that J.J. Abrams will do it justice in whatever way he feels fit for the mainstream public.
