Geek Links of the Week

I’m still trying to figure out this whole geek culture blog thing and I’m dragging you, dear reader, along with me for this ride. So today, I’m trying out a micro-sized linkdump. I’m open to suggestions on this thing, whether you love, think it needs changes or want it killed with fire.

The media focuses on Facebook and Twitter when talking about social websites but who did Forbes put on their 30 under 30 list? That would be Tumblr founder and CEO David Karp. [Forbes]

Want to know more about the upcoming Pokemon X & Y? Pokemon’s director of marketing did an interview about the upcoming game, including why a full-fledged Pokemon game hasn’t made it to a home console. [Game Informer]

Good news! A study conducted at Penn State says that being a gamer doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll die alone. Take that, Fox News! [The Atlantic]

Ever wonder if your choice of game character said anything about you? TSJ thinks it might. [The Smoking Jacket – Site possibly NSFW]

On my other site, I put together an in-depth examination of the history of the iconic Doctor Who theme music. Whovians should probably read it. [The Lowdown Blog]
