Otaku Quote from Wikipedia

Holy shit! Damn wikipedia.. this quote hits home.

“The otaku, the passionate obsessive, the information age’s embodiment of the connoisseur, more concerned with the accumulation of data than of objects, seems a natural crossover figure in today’s interface of British and Japanese cultures….”— William Gibson, April 2001 edition of The Observer

The information age’s embodiment of the connoisseur ahhh ha ha that’s so true. My appreciation of little details IN things outweigh the things themselves.

I suppose you can say this about every passion in life (wine, literature, music) but for some reason it hasn’t really smacked me in the face like it has tonight.

Anyways, until this moment I had huge negative association with the term Otaku. Not anymore.
