Who are we Geeks?

According to lots of sites and blogs, magazines and newspapers, and definitive own experience, Geeks are just people with a particular interest and are used to excel at whatever it might be. And given that in present and future day, technology in all its faces, controls pretty much the world, we Geeks control technology which ordinary people use to make a living or just live with. In a 2007 interview on The Colbert Report, Richard Clarke said the difference between nerds and geeks is "geeks get it done." Although being described as a geek tends to be an insult, the term has recently become more complimentary, or even a badge of honor, within particular fields. This is particularly evident in the technical disciplines, where the term is now often a compliment, denoting extraordinary skill.
