Nerd, geek or dork?

My friend and fellow writer Catherine Russell posted an interesting discussion of nerds vs. geeks. It's worth a read.

In that spirit, this venn diagram of has been floating around for a little while. For the sake of SEO completeness, let me point out that it addresses the questions: "What is a geek?", "What is a nerd?" and "What is a dork?"

  1. I've never seen that diagram before, but it seems to fit; doesn't it? Thanks for posting it!

  2. My blog Amish Stories is having its first ever contest this week. The First prize winner will win 2 tickets to tour the farm where the 1985 move "Witness" staring Harrison Ford and Kelly Mcgillis was made in Strasburg,Pa . This farm is now Amish owned, and the family has given permission for folks to tour their farm. This may be the last time anyone will be able to walk and see the same things that Harrison Ford and the other actors saw during the making of "Witness". The Witness tour should last about 2.5 hours. In addition to the Witness farm tour tickets, 1st prize winner will also receive 2 tickets for Jacobs choice. There will also be a 2nd place prize, which will be 2 tickets for the Amish Homestead. Please go to My blog for contest details, and more information on the prizes. Richard from the Amish settlement of Lebanon county.
