Catering to the Creative nerd

I was trying to put my finger on what it is that makes me think Steve Jobs and George Lucas have a lot in common. For me the common thread is they are about the only two people who will consistantly put out things i like. I think the common thread is there in the title. They are the two people who most prominently rode the wave of the creative nerd. This is very different from the science or math nerd. The creative nerd is every bit as socially awkward as other breeds of nerd, but their shy genius is expressed most clearly in story format, often with a lot of visual components. Now at least, the whole phenomenon makes sense to me. These two moguls happened to be in the right place, at the right time to leverage this aspect of the revenge of the nerds that is this generation. (the iGeneration? ackk)
