A Media Geek is a prosumer pseudo-hipster. He or she probably owns a Macbook, produces a podcast, makes highly rated Youtube videos, wears Threadless t-shirts, supports piracy and writes for PitchFork Media or the Village Voice. Unlike true geeks, Media Geeks can't programme, and although they may own ironic manga figurines or wear screen printed t-shirts from 70's TV shows, they don't actually watch anime or Open University science programmes.
