The nerd equivalent of street cred. It is essentially a person's trustworthiness (or 'cred' for 'credibility') as someone who knows what's up on the Internet. The fewer degrees of separation one has from the cradles of new developments - such as following the right accounts on Twitter, being there when the very first incarnation of a new meme-to-be ever got posted on an imageboard, etc. - the more net cred one has. Essentially: a qualitative measure of one's experience with or knowledge of the Internet as a community at large.
You got 10k followers on Twitter because of your cyber news channel on YouTube? Boy, I guess you must legit have a lot of net cred with quite a few of people then, huh?
