Ok, after seeing this on Julia‘s Blog I had to quickly take this test. Well, I’m more of a nerd thank I thought (I sorta considered myself Geeky up until this point). The other jaw dropper I just discovered is that Julian Bleecker, author of the Blogject Manifesto, just posted here that he’s looking forward to reading my response. Which means that I have to finish writing it.

(And I probably shouldn’t have used the phrase “U-Chicago Style Beat Down.” Julian, if you’re reading this, I’m looking forward to a discussion on this subject (and I hope you don’t take my tounge-firmly-planted-in-cheek-blog-chest-pounding to seriously).)
Here’s the nerd thing…

Modern, Cool Nerd
82 % Nerd, 60% Geek, 26% Dork
For The Record:A Nerd is someone who is passionate about learning/being smart/academia.A Geek is someone who is passionate about some particular area or subject, often an obscure or difficult one.

A Dork is someone who has difficulty with common social expectations/interactions.

You scored better than half in Nerd and Geek, earning you the title of: Modern, Cool Nerd.

Nerds didn’t use to be cool, but in the 90’s that all changed. It used to be that, if you were a computer expert, you had to wear plaid or a pocket protector or suspenders or something that announced to the world that you couldn’t quite fit in. Not anymore. Now, the intelligent and geeky have eked out for themselves a modicum of respect at the very least, and “geek is chic.” The Modern, Cool Nerd is intelligent, knowledgable and always the person to call in a crisis (needing computer advice/an arcane bit of trivia knowledge). They are the one you want as your lifeline in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (or the one up there, winning the million bucks)!
