So far we have: nerds, dorks and geeks.
Very confusing

I don't consider myself a nerd. I just consider myself weird.

There's only been a dichotomy between the terms for the last decade or so, I think. Regardless, nowadays when you see a kid building a catapult in his back yard, you know he's a geek, not a nerd.

Yes. I'm a software developer. When I'm not working I'm thinking about data structures, object models, software architecture, interfaces, polymorphism, thread management, and witty responses to SOH posts.

I wouldn't say that I am a nerd, I have no interest in the stereo typical things nerds like, but I am socially awkward.

No too well rounded, confident, and popular. One of the factors that makes a nerd a nerd is that they are very beta and awkward

I'm not technically a nerd, but in some ways I am. I'm definitely not "cool", and I take some honors classes, but I still have a social life, and I don't fry my brains with video games.

Your comment made me think this might be a fun poll question: "Are you smarter than the average SOH user?" ;-)

I know a lot of useless info. I don't think that makes me a nerd. But I absolutely love them. Geeks, too. As Hardison from Leverage says, "Age of the geek, baby. Age of the geek."

Never realized there is a difference, I just use the two terms interchangeably!

Nerds just sit around watching anime all day; geeks get things done.

A total of 9 AP classes in high school and always having either the history channel or news channels on, yeah I'm pretty much a nerd haha

I'm way smarter than average, but I am also very well rounded... A 'nerd', to me, means simply very smart and nothing else

I think having/playing about 340 video games and setting a goal to reach 500 by the end of 2013 qualifies me as a nerd, yes.
