Geek Speak

Listen and learn: Welcome to the rebirth of salon culture

If there's one thing geeks like, it's learning. And if there's a second thing they like almost as much, it's sharing their knowledge (aka teaching). Take those two things together, and it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that the past few years have seen the rebirth of salon culture -- events where people get together and just ... talk.
