In order to become a hipster, one must first segway into geek to fully become a hipster.

Burr Settles applied a coordinate system to words that frequently appear in tweets with the words “nerd” and “geek.”  The x-axis represent the frequency with which a word that was used with the word “nerd” and likewise, the y-axis with “geek.”  I underlined words that I would either use to describe my interests, words I use often, or words that I frequently hear other people use to describe me.  It’s pretty heavy on the nerd side.  Hipster is nestled in with the geek side (noted in red) but just by a smidgen.
