Geeks and Star Wars

Neal Stephenson wrote a fascinating Op-Ed in today's New York Times.  He talks about the geeky sections of Star Wars and the “veg-out” sections (for everybody else).  He also talks about how modern society's dependence on geeks parallels the (Star Wars) Republic's dependence on the Jedi.  Cool!
