OK kids, time for a little history lesson…

All you millennials may not realize this, but there was a time, not so long ago, when being called a geek wasn’t exactly flattering.

While technology has turned the tables quite a bit for geeks, it is important to know where we came from. Here is a fun little infographic timeline that depicts the evolution of the geek. I hope you enjoy tracing back your geek lineage.
