At the intersection of intelligence and obsession in the subclasses of the nerd venn diagram lies the geek. Passionate and prideful in your craft. You exhibit the same craftsmanship in everything you do - whether it’s beer, bikes, coffee or tech. You want to work with others that share a sense of craftsmanship. You seek to join a band of rebels who’ve long ago given up on popular notions of success and conformity. You know that the relentless pursuit of your craft means a lot of hard work, but for you it is not work. It is pursuing your vision.
