I just went to a convention with the people described in this article. Heck. I am one of those people (up to a terminally uncool point, where I fall behind the bell-shaped curve). I am also perturbed by what Ian McDonald refers to as parasitic attention seekers. We are living in an attention economy. Nothing matters more (or less) to people than your attention.
