I have always thought of myself as a techy, but am often called a geek. However, those people are unaware of the difference between a geek and a nerd. At the moment I believe that geeks do have social lives, but mainly hang out with other geeks, whereas techies are people who are just as into technology as geeks, but hang out with non-geeks as well as geeks. Most of my friends are non geeks, and I tend to go out every day or two but I am very interested in various "geeky" subjects. Does this make me a geek or a techy?
