soggy dinner

The Southern Oregon Geek Group (soggy) started in October 2008. It’s a general group of Southern Oregon computer geeks of all stripes: programmers, IT professionals, web designers, tech entrepreneurs, and so on.

We have an informal, social dinner in Medford on the first Thursday of every month, and another in Grants Pass on the third Thursday of every month. If you have ever been scolded for “geeking out” at a party, this is the gathering for you!

    The word geek is a slang term originally used to describe odd or non-mainstream people, with different connotations ranging from "an expert or enthusiast" to "a person heavily interested in a hobby", with a general pejorative meaning of "a peculiar or otherwise dislikable person, esp[ecially] one who is perceived to be overly intellectual".[1]
    Although often considered as a pejorative, the term is also often used self-referentially without malice or as a source of pride. Its meaning has evolved to connote "someone who is interested in a subject (usually intellectual or complex) for its own sake."
