Some Analysis on What Makes the Outcasts Tick

Being a nerd myself (I've got a 'blog don't I? And a no-content one at that!), I enjoy coming across these types of articles. First is a psychologist showing that for many fans of heavy metal it's not the satan content, but the complex political and social issues expoused in the music. I'm sure it's a little about the music too, but that's neither here nor there. The other one is a bit more targeted at IT types, but it makes a point worth considering: creativity is helped by having some constraints. And it uses Dungeons & Dragons as the example.
