By those definitions I tick a few nerd boxes and a few geek boxes, but still not enough to classified as either.
Yes. I have try to find the differences but I just find.

Nerd définition

Appeared in the late 1950's the United States, the term has become pejorative, unlike geek. Indeed, compared to a geek, a nerd is more antisocial and more polarized in their interests, to which he devotes more time.

The language has probably evolved in recent years due to the exponential growth of the Internet, but originally, the term "nerd"is not absolutely specific to computer science. This slang term, used mainly by students in American high schools (which are used to classify students into pre-established categories: athletes, gothic, etc..) can be translated as "nerd" (with pejorative implications for some): it can refer here to the stereotype (see a lot of sitcoms like Saved by the Bell or Parker Lewis Can not Lose) the guy with glassesrecorded in chess club and / or astronomy , which has always reply to everything, but uses big words that nobody understands, which annoys many playmates.

Unlike the geek (rather technician at heart, and essentially turned to new technologies such as computers), the nerd has a passion for everything related to science in general (and especially the sciences called "hard" as mathematics or physics), making it more of a theoretician. But there is one important similarity between the geek and the nerd who is to be trusted, a priori, and primarily for computer media to acquire the knowledge necessary for expressing their doubts.

The connotations associated with the term nerd (and its cousin, the geek) vary widely among people who use it. Moreover, we find the same ambiguity with the term otaku.
To resume the main difference is that the nerd is too passionate about his passion and forget the reality while the geek has more down to earth.
So if you have other idea...
