A person involved in methods of escapism involving in general computers, sci-fi, anime etc. More often intelligent but not a pre-requsite to been a geek. Often disparaged or shuned by other groups of society when with others of their own kind entirely comfortable and isolate themselves from others, inclined to not be outgoing. Has the same chance as everbody else in future life, often believe that due to Bill Gates and society's reliance on computers that they themselves will be successful, but need character in order to do so. Could be head of multi-million worth firm, could also be stuck in a dead end job in the same rut they were at at school
Bill Gates was most likely a geek at school, but worked in a shed creating microsoft and had the drive and character to drive it through into the corporate giant it is today. Similarly today a person can remain a geek all their life going no where, working in a dead end job with little or moderate pay with no relationship.

A Geek is the "cooler" version of a Nerd, some might have the same amount of knowledge but tend to be more Popular. This depends on what people may benefit from theme. Like Nerd they tend to have the same type of "Strage Reactions", but they are often called upon to help out with computer problems, therefore complimenting thiere lack of popularity.
Most of geeks have a good taste for music as they spends most of thiere time on the internet downloading the "Reacent" music also burning it on discs for friends.

They are also a reliable source of information as there constance presents on the internet keeps theme updated on big events, like football results.

A geek is any person who is specially intelligent or talented in any specific area of expertise. Geeks are not to be confused with nerds who are simply dorky, uncoordinated and usually lack social skills.
Geeks often have some sort of social skills yet are dorky (though there are many geeks who are not also dorks).
