What is Nerd Tangent?

 I believe it was Patton Oswald who said, “Nerds don’t have hobbies, they have passions.”

 When passionate people have discussions about their passions – when nerds talk about nerd stuff – I think the conversation is like an audible webpage, full of verbal hyperlinks that lead deeper into the rabbit hole.  How many discussions about the Death Star have led to debates on Superman’s strength levels; how many arguments about the DHARMA Initiative have ended in a reference from The Simpsons?

There are several websites that have discussions about comic books, genre films, television shows, fantasy novels and tabletop roleplaying games.  Nerd Tangent is a site where all of those discussions can happen, and often bleed into one another.
