* AlbertEinstein may be the trope originator.
* Creator/KevinSmith. He makes films featuring nerds debating which ''StarWars'' movie was best, the ethical implications of the destruction of the second Deathstar, the status of the ''{{Transformers}}'' as a gift from God, and whether ''StarWars'' or ''LordOfTheRings'' is the true trilogy of Geekdom.

Strictly speaking, the {{Geek}}, the {{Nerd}}, and the {{Otaku}} are characters who are, well, uncool. But a rising trend in modern fiction is to show one of these character types as being downright outspoken. Maybe they missed the memo informing us that geek culture is supposed to be uncool, or maybe they think that popular culture sucks and being geeky is the best way to express your individuality in the face of a hopelessly conformist mainstream. [[IAmWhatIAm But these are the people who are proud of their geekiness and won't hesitate to flaunt it.]] And why shouldn't they? After all, [[MostTropersAreYoungNerds we]] always come up with the cool stuff years before it's in, we invent the neat gadgets, we made the Internet and video games what they are today...ahem. Sorry.
