obviously developing interests/cultural references is the best way to bond with people (even childhood ones can be particularly powerful). hell, i’m not even sure if google reader is a waste of time. a lot of the things i read are very cultural. internet culture. and this helps you win friends with nerds. it’s like the elegant literature/poetry/whatever of the early 1900s.

in fact, internet culture is a lot better for winning *useful* friends than most other forms of culture. if you define *useful* as those who are technically savvy and into CS and what nerds do.

even SIM games helped me bond with chantal (since she asked me if i played those games since i mentioned them on my profile). of course the best ones to develop are those that are known to people who are particularly compatible with you (hence why I need to be very acquainted with nerdy cultural references like some computer games, xkcd, and some forums). even some 4chan and urbandictionary help.
