I am GeekStar

I didn’t realize when I purchased the domain name geekstar.com, that I was setting my blog up for future geek success. I just discovered that geekstar is actually a word in the Urban Dictionary.

According to the Urban Dictionary:

  geekstar
 

A person who has assumed the role of celebrity among geek peers, but remains a nonentity to the rest of the world; most often through a high profile association with software or web based services that become particularly popular.

“That Marc Andreessen was a geekstar when he founded Netscape, but Bill Gates, well, people might aspire to his wealth, but nobody in their right mind would want to be him.”
