Good grief. Nerds (geeks) are cool and popular these days.
After all, they’re the only ones who can fix your computer.
(As told me by my very geeky daughter who wears it like a badge of honor.)
No kidding. When I shop for computers or equipment, I go in the store and ask for a geek. The clerks all vie for the title, and compete with each other over who’s the biggest geek. It is truly a badge of honor.
