20 Tweets: Too Pretty to Geek?

Heather Lafferty

Heather brings a rare level of passion to all things Magic. She's not a tournament grinder but she loves the game and the community more than most. She's the inventor of 20 Tweets and one of the lead content developers for Legit MTG. Her official title around here is Community Manager but we all know her as our Angel.

Magic Sensei @fivewithflores started quite the discussion when he linked to a CNN blog about women in geek culture–especially “non-geek,” attractive women at geek events. Magic culture is so inseparable from “geek culture”  that many Twitter wizards wanted to air their thoughts about the blog. While some debated the geek credentials of so called Booth Babes, others asked what “geek culture” even meant and whether it should have membership requirements. Can you claim geek status if you’ve seen a Spider Man movie but never read the comic? Can geek culture even be invaded? Should we care?
