A person who's highly intelligent and generally is against the mainstream of society. Unlike the goths, they are truely non-conformists. In the past they were generally shunned by society due to a lack of physical attractiveness, intelligence, and unusual maturity. A great illustration of Nerd life "back in the day" is the Revenge of the Nerds movies. In the modern area a "nerd" no longer is shunned from society. A modern nerd generally likes computers and video games. They could look like the nerds of old but they can also look like normal people.
Many have theorized to why nerds have been accepted into the mainstream. Two popular theories is that when video games became mainstream nerds and their mortal enemies the jocks were able to become friends. Also because computers now dominate our society nerds are accepted.
Also take note that the portion of nerds who are still shunned from society have became either a goth or an emo.

Something that all the jocks, rebels and gangstas become when highschool comes to an end and need to get a real job because throwing a football around won't get you anywhere anymore, teenage rebellion becomes a lost cause and being a gangbanger will just land you in jail. Also someone that the aformentioned will likely be working for
Jock: You mean no one cares if I can throw a 50 yard pass?
Rebel: The system isn't going anywhere?
Gangsta: Selling blow will put me in jail?
Nerd: That's right. Now one of you go get me some coffee.

A word originally coined by Dr Seuss (king nerd himself), meaning someone who is smart. It is now usually used to desribe someone with more knowledge about computers than the average schmuck. Note, there IS a difference between a geek and a nerd. Geek's wish they were as good as nerd's, but at the end of they day, they are just second rate try-hard Nerds

the group of people who will most likely make a life changing invention that will radically change the world. the computer was invented by a nerd. the macintosh/apple and windows were invetned by nerds. jocks and normal people have no claim to civilization except for being the hard labor. nerds actually do the thinking. so jocks, fuck you, and go eat your steroids
Nerds created almost everything that civilzation needs, such as computers, calculators, windows, etc.
