While geeks may have been around for quite a long time, the recent increase in geekdom has certainly spawned more types than one may have ever imagined. From the Ubergeek to the Internet Geek, there are many different niches for all to fill.
Some say this new influx of geeks was spawned from a union of obsessive technophiles and yesterday's memes. Regardless of it's origin, the world of geeks has never been larger than it is today. With the Ubergeek sporting it's Linux builds and likely coding in over 5 different languages, it is certainly the geekiest of geeks.
Some other examples of these geeks are the Apple Fanboy Geek, who can be seen wandering around an Apple store and offering help, even though it doesn't work there. Also, there is the Cosplay Geek, who will dress up however it wishes to portray it's favorite role-playing character as accurately as possible. The Music Geek will show off it's vinyl collection while knowing the differences in many different genres.
