Erm, I guess I would be a nerd then.

I like all three terms though. I call myself all three names all the time, so I take little stock on this article :P

Ah, investigative journalism! ;P I use all three, though the one I'm most familiar with is:
Nerd: highly intelligent, prioritizes anything academic-related over all else - may choose studying for their calculus exam over bathing or may spend money on an excellent statistic computer program over acne skin treatments.

Geek: also unconcerned with mundane things like bathing or clear skin, but tends to focus their efforts towards a specific fandom or several instead of academic pursuits. May fail their recent SOL but has the complete Next Generation Season Four DVD watched.

Dork: Unconcerned about all of the above, rarely limits their interests as the above two may. I might use in an unintelligent context, but not in a harsh way, such as "yeah, we're such dorks, we always have to go back to the grocery store because we forget things."

Though they're hardly exclusive to each other, and I don't think someone is always one or the other, or none, all of the time.
