geektee-talknerdy.jpgMany SMITH readers know that online storytelling legend and friend o’ SMITH Derek Powazek has recently reignited Fray, bursting back with stories on getting Busted. Following the web-print mixed media model Derek trail-blazed with JPG Magazine, “Busted” stories are found both online and as a mag-a-book, with true tales from some of our favorite writers, such as Joe Loya and Kevin Smokler. Next up: geeking out. But it’s not what you think. Derek explains: “We’re taking the word ‘geek’ back. It’s not about computers and pocket protectors. It’s about passion—loving something too much. So much that people around you don’t understand.” We feel you, brother. He’s also looking for interviews with notable geeks (you know you know one). Go here for guidelines and deadlines for the latest from Fray, “Geek: Stories of People Taking Things Too Seriously.”
