In case you are not familiar with the character and personality associations with the word geek, especially in comparison to similar and often incorrectly exchanged words, here is a short summary:
- Dorks are generally socially inept and do or say things which may fall under the labels "stupid" and "lame."
- Nerds are generally intelligent and tend to have a large knowledge base revolving around math, sciences, and technology.
- Geeks are usually obsessive over one or more specific things, be it a book series, television show, historical period, or other.
I have a great love of words and all things musical. I'm a reformed computer engineering major-turned-journalism major with minors in music and English.
Unable to completely shake my origins in computer science, I've come to think of writing as "word engineering." Writers strive to use their resources wisely, using few words to convey great meaning, while streamlining and sculpting each phrase to draw out emotions and enrich the human experience.
Language is a beautiful thing - changeable and fickle, base and grand in turns and one of the most powerful mediums of the human mind.
