Who or what is a nerd?
25 April 2017 | by Amy-LivingstonSee all my reviews

Austrian artist and filmmaker Johannes Grenzfurthner tries to answer this question in his documentary Traceroute. It is a journey back in time (to the 1970s and 1980s) – and a trek across the USA, featuring interviews with many dedicated geeks about their worldview(s).

I would summarize Traceroute as a funny road movie and insightful commentary about covert culture, subversive science and fringe art.
