« Geek »… You said « geek » ?

Around me (in France), I hear the term “geek” used wildly roughly, for certain persons, as soon as you have an iThing, you communicate by SMS or as soon as you publish text on Facebook, that’s it, ” you are there “!

 

There is often confusion between geek, nolife, nerd, etc.

The term geek began by indicating an individual spending a lot of time on its computer to the detriment of its social life, an enthusiast of computing. But it was “a long time ago”…

Since then, the term evolved a little.

 

It now indicates an individual liking several domains, among which the science fiction, the computing or the fantasy, in which he has very precise knowledge which he shares within active and passionate communities. His activities often articulate around these domains (comics, role play, literature, cinema, music, video games, strategy games).
