People tend to use these terms — as well as others — interchangeably, and I’ve always felt that they shouldn’t be. I mean, at least these days, someone calls you a geek, it’s usually not meant to be taken nearly as derogatory as being called nerd. And dork or dweeb are hardly ever meant as a compliment, at least in my experience. So it was with considerable relief that I found late last week that someone had taken care of this issue for me and laid out these terms and their relationship with either other via a Venn diagram. My wife, daughter the elder, and I all think it’s pretty close to right on the money, too, as it shows why being called a geek these days isn’t usually meant as an insult.
