I think the meaning of "geek" is in flux.

You could argue that at one point "geek" was just a term for "non-academic intellectual." Now it seems that "geek" is a much looser term, requiring only a fondness for technology.

As an geek in the high old fashion, it's a bit sad to see the word lose its meaning, but "real" geeks are still out there.
