Geeky conversations

I just added this link to delicious for tomorrow's link post.  It's about geek conversational behaviours, and is quite interesting.  It follows up nicely from this post from 10 years ago about the conversational behaviour of sf-fans.

What I found vastly more interesting was the conversation that followed on from it on Hacker News - 134 comments so far, varying from "Normal people suck, the way I speak is more technically correct, and therefore better!" to "Wow, how did you get inside my head?" via all sorts of interesting examples of problems people have had communicating with colleagues, friends and partners.  It's very much worth spending 5 minutes reading down it.
