Geek Facts on Geekdom

Years ago, being called a geek was something to be embarrassed about. Decades ago it probably meant you were in a carnival sideshow eating the heads off of live chickens. Today, it can be seen as a badge of honor or at least a label you don’t mind. In fact, the term geek is so widely used, and affectionately so, that there are many types of geeks as this infographic on geeks will show. The geeks are well positioned in all places in our society: Internet geek, film geek, music geek, and my favorite, the comic geek.
