It is a Japanese word describing something more than a hobby but not quite an obsession.

Otaku is what gets you to drive across town to eat at your favorite sushi bar. Otaku is why people camp out days before the new iPhone is released. Otaku is rooting for your favorite sports team.

Another way to think about otaku is the pursuit of something remarkable.

This is my 700th blog post. My otaku. Thank you for reading.
