I recently read Microserfs by Douglas Coupland. One of the big players in the book are Lego stones.
In the story they postulate, that all geeks did play with Lego when they were childs. Now, I did play with Lego, a co-worker and geek still plays with Lego. So at the moment it is 2:0 in favour of the book's theory.
Question: do you also see this coincidence?
