Two strange phenomena I've noticed lately.

* The U.S. Post Office has decided to decorate some of its mailboxes in imitation of R2D2. I saw one of the newly-redone mailboxes about 3 blocks from my Philadelphia office just the other day. It looks...just like a mailbox dressed up like R2D2, probably because mailboxes don't have the right shape to properly emulate our favorite 'bot.

* Today I saw an ad on Chester County Book & Music Company's "community bulletin board" for a Harry Potter summer camp. I just consulted my friend Google and learned that this is not just a local phenomenon; such camps are springing up all over: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/8660078/

Triumphs of geek culture? Maybe. What do you think?
