So what is a nerd?
Well there are 2 contexts that a nerd can be described in. One is positive, the other no so much, however we will define both to help you create what a nerd is and the relevence of these definitions have on this blog.
Firstly the not so nice one but still very valid;
a foolish or contemptible person who lacks social skills or is boringly studious. In other words, someone who is not very social and spends more of their time studying and being with themselves. Sometimes this is what they prefer, where as other times, events in their lives have forced them to take this role.
The other definition and the one that is more related to this particular site is;
a single-minded expert in a particular technical field. In other words, someone who has great knowledge, education and abilities in a particular field as a result of spending much time studying and focusing on that field. These ‘nerds’ or excellent in what they do, often excelling the rest.
So there you have it. So now you know what a nerd is, we can now begin to talk about how these skills or nerds are beneficial, in such things like technology.
