One would like to think that things have changed since 1995. But maybe not humor.

Feel free to disagree, I was referring to the article. I know it's supposed to be a joke but I have recently seen so many relationships where people tried to hook up with a less confident person on the sole purpose of controlling them: "go for a geek guy, no other woman will want him so you are safe" or "date a chubby/ugly girl, she will let you do anything".
Obviously, there is nothing wrong with watching Star Trek, or eating pizza, or playing games and having a t-shirt with Atari logo on it. But if see these traits as signs of unattractiveness and you find it desirable at the same time then I think something is wrong Again, I know it was a joke but I keep seeing this kind of "relationships" all the time in real life and they never end up well. Sorry to be such a killjoy, I'm just getting old and grumpy I guess

I am sure that happens; I don't know anybody like that, fortunately. That sounds despicable. But those programmers whose other halves I know don't seem like that.

intuitively so to say
hacker is e.g. Stallman, Wozniac, Jobs
cracker is a "black hacker" e.g. Mitnic
nerds geeks i guess they are subsets of hackers dunno maybe Bill Gates ?
there're also other neologisms that right now i don't remember
