Sprinkled amongst both Generation X and Generation Y is a curious, new population. The Nerd. The Geek. A group which has spent the last two decades moving amongst the dark technological fringe is now a mainstream demographic.
In this presentation, I will explore the traits of the geek. How is that we're able to rampantly consume information? How many people do we really know? Why is it that we must solve puzzles? How is it that we're so good at context switching, but so bad at relating to people? And is all this nerdery going to help or hinder my career?
