What is a Geek? What is a Dork? What is a Nerd? Here is my definition:
“A geek is somebody that has a good knowledge of something and can help you out.” Jeffrey continues, “I’m a Podcast Geek. A dork is a person who extrudes that a bit more. I am a dork for wearing Star Wars shirts like what I am wearing. A nerd is someone who is completely consumed.”
