The Nerd Handbook

I subscribe to Safari Books Online, a service that gives me access to thousands of technical books through any web browser.  In their newsletter today, one of the featured books was "Being Geek".  The title caught my eye so I started to browse through it and found a chapter titled "The Nerd Handbook" which also turns out to be a blog post on the author's web site "RandsInRepose".  While I would not agree with everything in this chapter/blog, it does give a reasonable view of what a nerd is and how to handle one.
