 The Jargon Lexicon 4.4.6 (October 25, 2003): geek   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Most geeks are adept with computers and treat hacker as a term of respect, but not all are hackers themselves — and some who are in fact hackers normally call themselves geeks anyway, because they (quite properly) regard ‘hacker’; as a label that should be bestowed by others rather than self-assumed.
Earlier versions of this lexicon defined a computer geek as one who eats (computer) bugs for a living — an asocial, malodorous, pasty-faced monomaniac with all the personality of a cheese grater.
This is often still the way geeks are regarded by non-geeks, but as the mainstream culture becomes more dependent on technology and technical skill mainstream attitudes have tended to shift towards grudging respect.

 GeekGirl Global   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In its original meaning, the work "geek" identified a "carnival performer often billed as a wild man whose act usually included biting the head off a live chicken or snake." In more recent times, the word "geek" has come to identify "a person often of an intellectual bent who is disapproved of".
Despite the generally negative connotation indicated by these definitions, the last few years have seen the term "geek" most frequenty associated with and identifying devoted and highly knowledgeable users of personal computers, often also referred to (in a somewhat more positive sense) as "techies".
This "transformation" of the meaning of the word "geek" from a carnival performer who bites the heads off chickens or snakes, to a person highly knowledgeable about computers and the like, has also to a large extent altered the originally negative connotation of the term to one having a more positive meaning.
