Defn: [Geek]

From How to Manage Geeks,
According to the traditional stereotype,
geeks are people who are primarily fascinated
by technology and its uses. The negative part
of that stereotype is the assumption that
they have poor social skills. Like most
stereotypes, it's true in general -- but
false at the level of specifics.
By society's definition, they are antisocial.
But within their own community, they are
actually quite social. You'll find that
they break themselves into tribes:
mainframe-era graybeards, Unix people
who started out 20 years ago,
the new PC-plus-Web generation.

A nice article overall :)

PS: Watched "Iti Srikanta" yesterday. Nice art film, literally.
