Similarly to other phrases applied in a derogatory manner to a group, the application of the term "geek" to a member of the geek community, used in the sense of a technologically competent, or knowledgeable, person, has become something of an honor, and self-described geeks are now common. Geeks are often also hackers.
A community has also grown up around geekdom. One of the benefits of this is that it allows social success for many geeks, something that has been traditionally difficult for them.
