It's not necessarily a bad thing or a good thing; it's just a characteristic.

A nerd is unusually smart, esp. in math, science, and/or computers. He or she tends to know a lot about pop culture, yet, ironically, often doesn't have great social skills. Usually has a great sarcastic, witty sense of humor (deriving from the knowledge of pop culture). Well-rounded, but just can't express him/herself to non-nerdy people well.

Seth Cohen on "The O.C." (the best example)
Shia LaBoeuf's character in "Transformers"
The "I'm a Mac" guy in "Live Free or Die Hard"

Geek, dork, and dweeb, on the other hand, tend to have negative connotations.

Guy 1: What's with the nerdy guys having these hot, nice girlfriends?
Guy 2: I think the women are tired of jerks and want someone who'll treat them nice and take care of them.
Guy 1: Yeah. So you want to get wasted and treat women like meaningless objects?
Guy 2: Yeah! Let's go!

A person who is unaware that his behavior appears odd to others. If you told him so, he would not believe you. If you explained why, he would not understand.
He's a great guy, but sometimes you have to overlook all that cluelessness. He's a real nerd, up there in Asperger's territory.
