If you've been banned from the Computer Hope chat room for disobeying rules or misbehaving, that ban will not be removed.By Caerley Hill Geeks, nerds, dorks, dweebs ‒ whatever you want to label the technically inclined, you can’t deny that the geek is chic or nerdy by nature culture is here. The media helped shape the iconic tape-on-the-glasses, DND-player that we think of when someone says geek or nerd.

However, these days, being unconventional is cool, and smart is sexy (though we think it’s always been), giving new street cred to the smarty-pants. While we can’t find any voted-on, written-in-ink guidelines, we’ve always thought a geek’s core characteristic was technical skills, while a nerd earned his or her title from social awkwardness.

To us, geeks tend to enjoy heavy social sharing (it could be argued that geeks turned ‘Instagramming’ into a verb), they haven’t met an ironic graphic tee that they won’t wear and they’ve got every latest tech gadget in their back pocket and the social wherewithal to chat you up about it.

But the posts, when they come, are a delight — 3,000, 8,000, even 26,000 (seriously) words, complete with crude but hilarious illustrations, diagrams, and infographics, written in friendly, nontechnical language that still manages to honor the complexities of the subjects. At the end, you feel sated, like you just learned the shit out of something, like you get something in a way you didn't before.

Here's a description of Urban's process, from a recent post: One type of WBW post is the "let’s just take this whole topic and really actually get to the bottom of it so we can all completely get it from here forward." The ideal topic for that kind of post is one that’s really important to our lives, and that tends to come up a lot, but that’s also hugely complex and confusing, often controversial with differing information coming out of different mouths, and that ends up leaving a lot of people feeling like they don’t totally get it as well as they "should." The way I approach a post like that is I’ll start with the surface of the topic and ask myself what I don’t fully get—I look for those foggy spots in the story where when someone mentions it or it comes up in an article I’m reading, my mind kind of glazes over with a combination of "ugh it’s that icky term again nah go away" and "ew the adults are saying that adult thing again and I’m seven so I don’t actually understand what they’re talking about." Then I’ll get reading about those foggy spots—but as I clear away fog from the surface, I often find more fog underneath.

Join the chat now (IRC: irc.#computerhope) Because of the wide variety of users who help in the Computer Hope chat, we ask all users to obey the rules below.

Users who do not follow these rules may be banned from this service and other Computer Hope services. Any additional legal information and rules on Computer Hope can also be found on our legal statement. Although Computer Hope operators and volunteers may be logged in, at this time we cannot always guarantee responses at all times of the day.So then I research that new fog, and again, often come across other fog even further down.My perfectionism kicks in and I end up refusing to stop going down the rabbit hole until I hit the floor. Hitting the floor is a great feeling and makes me realize that the adults weren’t actually saying anything that complicated or icky after all.Because they are volunteers, they have a right to choose what questions they want to answer.If a volunteer chooses not to help you with your question, you may choose to contact Computer Hope directly, which may not be as fast, but we do try answering all questions.So if social adeptness is where they differ, perhaps geeks are smart extroverts and nerds are smart introverts.
