The Geek Ettiquette Primer

Jason Richards has some advice for aspiring geeks.  In my taxonomy of promising students, I want them to progess:

  1. nerd – enthusiastic, but socially and intellectually inept
  2. geek – enthusiastic and knowledgeable (with some Mad Skilz), but still socially awkward
  3. wonk – enthusiastic, expert, a polished communicator, and socially adaptable

Tip from–where else?–the GeekPress.
