NUMB3RS and the mainstream adoption of geekinees.

When the movie "Seven" came, it was original. The logo was "SE7EN." And sometime shortly thereafter, we all started using numbers in our passwords as letters to make them a little bit more secure. 1's for I's and L's, 3s for E's and B's, etc. (I'm completely sure that hackers haven't clued in on this and modified their password attack scripts accordingly, so keep on using that trick. It's a good one!)

Anyway, CBS has made a show about it. And might I add, a stupid one. Will the masses latch on to it? Of course they will. But I watched the pilot last night, where math genius boy found out where a serial rapist lives by applying mathematics to the problem. Realistic? Sure. The basis for an entire TV show? No. Especially since it has actors in it who all graduated from the WB or the OC or something like that.

Why doesn't CBS just add CSI:LA like they're dying too and change the name of the network to CSI? You know they want to.

that's actually a really valid point.
