How to recognize a geek in conversation:
These days, everyone is on the Net and has a homepage. Geeks are hot and people who can't tell the difference between the web and the Net have Dilbert cartoons tacked up. At the same time, geeks are developing social skills. How do you recognize a real geek, a true geek, a geek of the first order? Well, I can't tell you secret handshake, but certain conversational hints should illuminate the difference between posuers and coders.
Meeting one of these criteria does not make someone a geek (except the wearable computing thing). It's the total number of signs you observe and the intensity of those qualities.

Hello, Sue. It's Joe "I just got hip to this Internet thing" Saunders stopping in to say hello. I was fooling around with the Yahoo thing the other day when I thought of doing a search for my friend Perry -- whom you may recall -- since he's a teacher now at the University of Puget Sound. I looked and bingo, he was there. Then I remembered you were doing something scholarly, did a search et voila! There you are. Liked the joke about two Jorg Bauers. Liked you better with long hair, but I've never seen the X-Files, so I can't be a fair judge.
