Since I got an e-mail reminder yesterday after somebody posted another introduction, I figured I'd check back and was actually surprised that this group now has more than 30 people in it. I mean... that's awesome, especially since Switzerland is not really a major part of Nerdfighteria as of today.
So anyway: Are there any meetups or similar for this group? I mean... we live in a small country with great public transportation and it's not too hard to get around. And sometimes, it's really nice to hang out with people for real instead of just online. Especially this year, when summer happened to be on a Saturday! ;-)
That being said – watch out, shameless plug! – we recently opened up The Uncanny Book-Club in Zurich, which is essentially a group of people that are into books, comicbook, movies and other geeky stuff. We have a ton of Doctor Who and Firefly fans, I think... we should probably do a survey.
Anyway, we do most of our events in Zurich and I think it would be a very Nerdfighter-friendly environment. So if any of you in the area feel like joining, you are VERY welcome to do so. You can find us on uncanny.ch and here (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Uncanny-Book-Club/210511455766131) on Facebook.
I wanna write in Swiss-German but I feel the Swiss-french & Italians won't understand so I'll write the following in my native tongue instead..32 members! Nothing special..but we're growing! ~Victory dances~ Spread the nerdiness my swissy's spread it to all corners of the country! >:3
Hi Swiss Nerdfighters! It's weird writing in English when everyone knows, you're able to speak either German or French... :)
Hello everyone, another Swiss NF joining up. DFTBA! :)
Wunderbar! Welcome to the Schwiizer NF group. x)
i didn't really see myself as a nerd either.. but i guess to others who didn't like the things i liked considered me a nerd :P
Streber/Büffler is defined as a Swot, bookworm, nerd & geek in both negative & postive way. Though to use Nerd in the sense of comics for example, there's no german translation to my knowledge. @Damian Shaw In my Kanton I know of a comic shop in Aarau, but I've seen comic shops in Zürich, google it, man.
uh yes that's a difficult question.. the only places I know who would be considered nerdy are the Comix Shop in Basel also the park where people meet to play magic ;)
hi all! good to see there are nerdfighters in switzerland! does anyone know somewhere where there is unashamed nerdiness? I've found it very difficult to find so far, at least in Zurich
Hmm... isn't the word "Streber" - at least the way it was used "on" me - basically the same thing as calling someone a nerd? I mean, obviously the literal meaning is different, but colloquially, isn't it used to refer to people that have an unusual/odd interest in something (like math)? I knew quite a few guys that were seriously good at math, but the weren't considered "Streber", because they were not actually interested or enthusiastic about it - as opposed to me of course :). In my experience there has always been this same connotation of being an oddball that you can find with the use of the word "nerd".
