* While we're on the subject of bloggers, at least half The Atlantic's bloggers right now are geeks, self-confessed or otherwise. The most blatant example is Ta-Nehisi Coates, who rolls with the [[WorldOfWarcraft Horde,]] enough to write about it for Time. Business Editor Megan [=McArdle=] is also a gamer, though to what extent is unknown (She loves Civ, at least). Chief blogger Andrew Sullivan, being English-born, is an obvious Series/DoctorWho and Creator/MontyPython fan. Josh Green is limited to music geekery, enough to put up a fight with a music website. The rest (Ambinder, Fallows, Goldberg, and Crooks) remain uncertain (unless you count Fallows's beer fanaticism as geekery).

* Hidenori Kusaka, creator of the ''PokemonSpecial'' manga, doesn't get any inside info from Game Freak to help him out on his series. Instead, he plays the games when they come out and figures out which parts he wants to incorporate into the story. Some of his author notes have him [[{{Squee}} squeeing]] over whatever new features the games have.

* Creator/DavidHayter, best known for being [[Franchise/MetalGear Solid Snake]], is the one of the few ''Metal Gear Solid'' voice actors to have played and finished said game[[note]]Christopher Randolph (Otacon) has also played and finished it. Kim Mai Guest (Mei Ling) played it but quit around the torture sequence[[/note]]. He also speaks fluent Japanese, has named his only daughter Natasha after the character in the {{Marvel}} comic book Black Widow, and once stated in an anime convention that he was present because he was "a big fan of ''FushigiYuugi''" (he voiced Tamahome over there).

* Paul Krugman, who received the Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel (it is technically not a Nobel Prize) in 2008. It is not unusual for those with a Ph.D. to be nerds but he deserves a special mention. Reasons: 1) His interest in economics began when he read Creator/IsaacAsimov's ''{{Foundation}}'' books. He wanted to, just as in the book, be one of the social scientists "who understand the true dynamics save civilization". Since psychohistory does not exist, he turned to the closest thing, economics. 2) He posted [[http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/12/09/limited-posting-for-the-next-few-days/ this]] [[WebOriginal/LOLCats LOLcat]] on his blog upon leaving for Sweden to get his Nobel prize. 3) [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuRabL3lFPg This]] video. 4) To cheer himself up he once wrote [[http://krugman.blogs.nytimes.com/2008/03/11/economics-the-final-frontier/ The Theory of Interstellar Trade]], a paper where he outlines how trade between different star system might work. It does among other things take up how time dilation could affect economics. ''And'' he's a ''[[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]]'' fan!
