Geek Pride Day: A Field Guide to Los Angeles Geeks

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

There are no specific rituals you'll need to know about to observe Geek Pride Day today, but if you're looking to participate, you may benefit from the inclusion of something with a motherboard and/or a cartoon-ish costume. For those who wear their geek-dom with a more silent pride, pat yourself on the back today for your passionate, smart, diverse, and inventive ways. If you need 5 reasons to be proud to be a geek, Wired has a few suggestions you might want to point out to any doubters.

But for the geek-curious, we scoured the often-geeky territory of Flickr to find some L.A. geeks in their social habitats to put together this basic Field Guide to Los Angeles Geeks.
