VoxPop: Nerds. Our VoxPop team hits the streets of downtown Seattle to get the voice of the people. This time we wanted to find out what a nerd is? Seattle has become known for its increase in nerd culture, from Emerald City Comiccon to other weird science events, so we wanted to see who these people are. We asked around and to figure out what the people of Seattle consider a nerd and we came up with anything from glasses and pocket protectors to just being passionate about something. We also wanted see who thought they lived up to those nerd standards and considered themselves a little nerdy.
