    My wife, the English major who now does marketing and PR for Silicon Valley companies, says that "geeks" are a subset of "nerds," characterized by success in technology.  

    Larry Page and Sergey Brin (for anyone who does not recognize the names, they are the founders of Google) are geeks. 

    My brother, who can tell you the details of a dozen programming languages but has no social life, is a nerd.

    Nerd is so yesterday.  I prefer "Geek," with "Alpha Geek: or "Uber Geek" reserved for the genuine wizards ;-)
