Nerd = someone who's inordinately knowledgeable in a subject of some
(can be things as disparate as computers, movies, music, sports, opera,
Geek = someone who thinks he's a Nerd, but isn't

opinion. I've always associated geek with a negative connotation, but
I'm not really either one, I'm just a wannabe :)
