Nerds serve two masters. They want to be popular, certainly, but they want even more to be smart. And popularity is not something you can do in your spare time, not in the fiercely competitive environment of an American secondary school.
Nerds do not think they are better than you. Nerds are better than you, in their particular fields, unless you happen to be an even more devoted nerd.laura penny
Nerds aren't losers. They're just playing a different game, and a game much closer to the one played in the real world.paul graham
I want to be the poster girl for engineers and computer Nerds.
I think it was born out of that grade school fantasy that a lot of Nerds like me had, which was "I could probably get the cute red-headed girl that sits across from me, if only every other boy in the entire school dies."brian k. vaughan

The movie delights me with its cocky confidence that the audience can keep up. Primer is a film for Nerds, geeks, brainiacs, Academic Decathlon winners, programmers, philosophers and the kinds of people who have made it this far into the review.

Be nice to Nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.Charles J. Sykes
