Randy, whom I've known for many years, and worked with for the past few, is out there as a fashionable, hip, with-it guy who runs a dance troupe. Meeting him on the street, you wouldn't think of calling him a geek.

But anyone who, when talking about his new laptop, writes "i love the fact that you can just fire up the terminal window and SSH into wherever you want and have command line access" obviously has some geek left in him.

As my wife says, the world has become "Revenge of the Nerds." Although you're probably even cooler if you're a nerd with nice clothes.
