What is a SoutherNerd?

SoutherNerd is a word I made up to describe myself and anyone else who feels they would like to adopt this term to describe themselves.

It’s also a word I might print on some bumperstickers or t-shirts or something to raise pride for southern nerds, and to raise funds to get this maker space started.

Most importantly a SoutherNerd is a good friend to have around when something breaks.

    So if you get help from a SoutherNerd then you have ben Southernered? Or Southernerded?

      That makes it sound like SoutherNerds leave some kind of residue.

      I think that if you get help from a SoutherNerd then you’ve just been helped by a SoutherNerd.

      To clarify to nomenclature; SoutherNerding, or To SoutherNerd, is the act of being a SoutherNerd, which is independent of any observer. Therefore ‘To have been SoutherNerded’ implies that you have been engaged in the act of being a SoutherNerd. While the effects of a SoutherNerd, or SoutherNerds, engaged in SoutherNerding may be observable, SoutherNerding itself acts only upon the SoutherNerd themselves.

      Hope that clears things up.
