THE NERDUM MIND
Driven by a primordial urge to "Make things work", The Nerdum Freelancicus has been known to dive head-first into Projects that require new skills to be learned, new knowledge to be discovered and hacking to be slashed. Wether it be Arduino, figuring out how MIDI works or building a lamp from scratch, the Nerdum shies away from no challenge.
Ever the most humble of creatures. The Nerd is aware that his front-end skills are outmatched by other species (mainly the Extpertus Ante-Finem and the West-pangean Cee-esessorium). However: this does not stop it from doing its very best. This has the added evolotionary advantage of knowing “the lingo”. This proves magnificently useful in a group-based society where other species don’t always see eye to eye.

Much like the human appendix or male nipples this is simply an evolutionary dead-end. Nobody really knows why the nerdum is so obsessed with popular culture, science or just general useless knowledge.
