Julian Sanders reviewed the FixMeStick virus removal device on CTV this week and the host referred to him as a nerd.
Is Julian a nerd? Is it right to characterize someone who can help you solve a technology problem or recommend a technology product a nerd? Recently, Wired featured an article about the inherent geekiness of Google Glass. In the article, there is a little snippet we thought was particularly well written:
Now, far be it from me to claim that nerdiness equals lack of popularity potential. But I contend that dorkiness and nerdiness are two different qualities. While nerdiness implies a certain social awkwardness that’s ultimately endearing, dorkiness connotes social obliviousness that opens you to deserved ridicule.
Looks like this CTV host got it right. You can follow Julian’s nerdiness on Twitter: @saskajules.
