Happy Geek Pride Day to you!

geek beanieIn honour of the release of the first Star Wars movie in 1977, today is (un)officially Geek Pride Day. According to an entry on Wikipedia: "Geek Pride Day, is an initiative which claims the right of every person to be a nerd or a geek."

Apparently there are supposed to be festivities in Ottawa this year for Geek pride day but I haven't found any references online, other than blogs that copied the information straight from Wikipedia. (Side note: is it plagiarism if you copy a thought from a social media platform?)

Show your Geek pride with an item of Geek clothing from ThinkGeek.com! That reminds me, my Geek cap is getting pretty faded...

Have you heard of anything related to Geek Day in Ottawa? Did you go?
