    The stats are more interesting than the sweeping characteristics, however, I’m skeptical of comparison based on three sources where one purports “Geek Pride”, the second includes only the search term “geek” and not “nerd”, and the third is- the most reliable of sources- a wiki.

    Seems a fairly unbalanced presentation born of unbalanced research.

    I think that this further proves that the terms ‘Nerd’ and ‘Geek’ are very charged with pejorative biases.
    For the record: If you don’t like the movie Pi: Faith in Chaos, you’re worse than Hitler :)
    Go team nerd!

    The designer’s conflation of geeks and hipsters tells me he’s a hipster who is tired of being called a hipster and is trying to latch onto a relatively more accepted social group.

    So, where does “dork” fall in all of this?
