How do you define a geek? What’s a nerd?
Byron Alley

Yep. After achieving weird geek/nerd status roughly at age three when I learned to read, I was surprised when seemingly all of a sudden being a nerd and or a geek became cool. Then it became mainstream. Now everyone is a geek. And almost everybody is a nerd. But when everybody is something, then nobody is that something. The upside of it is less chance of bullying.
