How geeky are you: the geek code and the geek test
I discussed in my previous post about geeks and nerds that I would rely on people’s self-identification as one or the other to consider them as such and include them, their hobby or interest in the study of geek culture on this blog. I will continue, however, to pay attention to the many definitions people attribute to these terms. It is fascinating to see how people create mechanisms to determine empirically determine one’s geekiness or nerdiness. Two of these mechanisms were part of my recommendations for week-end fun last Friday: the Geek Code and the Geek Test. Did you check them out? I did, and here is a summary of my experience building my very own geek code and taking the test.
