The nerd (or 01101110 01100101 01110010 01100100 in binary) is a fascinating creature who roams offices, computer labs, and Star Trek conventions across the globe. Easily distinguished by their proficiency with computer code, numbers, or other fields of expertise, these folks are highly sought after for their ability to perform highly technical tasks and fix things by which the general populace is bewildered. The various types of nerds are nearly as plentiful as these wonderful creatures themselves: from mathematicians crunching huge integers to scientists mapping the human genome, all share a common quest for knowledge that binds them in the fraternity of nerd-dom. If you’re looking to purchase a gift for a birthday or anniversary, or you're just wanting to wish congratulations on their discovering a new quasar, try rewarding their inner nerdiness, and they’ll likely reciprocate by inventing something swell for you.
