Instapundit links to a site that lists 100 Essential Skills for a Geek. I had always thought I was at least reasonably endowed with geeky characteristics but looking at that list, I see only one skill I can confidently claim, no. 44: "Google obscure facts in under 3 searches" (I can often do it in 1). The other 99? Clueless.
I'm not sure whether to be dismayed or pleased.
