Hey!!! how come MLF's not on this list...buggers :finger:
Following your passion is the key to becoming a sexy geek, according to Marina Orlova. She should know: The nerdy wordsmith has built an online empire with her Hot for Words videos that make philology more fun than a trip to the library.

“The ultimate thing that makes a geek sexy is that fact that the geek is really good at something,” Orlova told Wired.com in an e-mail interview. “It’s an undying passion for something [that's] usually perceived to be a waste of time.” When computer nerds became billionaires in the ’90s, everything changed, Orlova said. “Voila, geeks are now sexy!”
