Hmmm. It's an interesting essay; it meanders more than a little bit, however, and I think he dilutes his point in doing so. The actual focus seems to be more about the masks we create for public consumption than about how nerds portray themselves; if anything, it begs the questions of how and why nerdly folk (such as moi) portray themselves as they do, what's effective or not about them, and so forth. Saying "it's simply not a priority" is missing a lot of the nature of what's going on (and perhaps colors things too much with a mature, developed viewpoint.)
