The Geek Code 4.0
The geek code attempts a concise description of your being in ‘geek space’, spanning key dimensions using a small set of categories and quantifying them with qualifiers.
The code consists of a set of alphanumeric identifiers indicating the various categories (and subcategories), and qualifiers + and – following the identifiers indicating amount/size/level of proficiency/etc. These qualifiers can be stacked, e.g s+++ indicates a person of extreme height (the s indicating size).
The broad categories encoded are: Wetware, Computers, Politics, Entertainment, Lifestyle. Most have subcategories; one can answer at any level of detail desired, thus eg. U++ indicates someone highly interested/proficient in Unix, while ULDU++ indicates someone into unix-linux-debian-ubuntu. Multiple subcategories can be indicated with a forward slash, e.g GH/C indicates a Geek of Humanities and Classics.
